by giving an extra $100 for each gift beyond 500!
Combined with Allan's $61,000 gift, a total of $156,074 has been

Above and beyond.
I should have known that Lindsey Wilson College alumni, parents
and friends would go above and beyond the call of duty when they
were challenged to help LWC students.
With less than 12 hours left in the "Chair's Challenge," I am
happy to report that we have raised more than $52,000 from 450
When I shared the good news earlier this morning with Board Chair
Allan Parnell, he issued one final challenge: he will give $50,000
to support LWC scholarships if 500 donors make a gift by midnight
If you've already made your gift to the "Chair's Challenge," thank
you for being part of this incredible event.If you haven't made a
gift yet, there's still time to help us us raise $50,000 more in
scholarship support for LWC students.

That was Allan Parnell's reaction when I informed him a
little past 10 a.m. CT today that the "Chair's Challenge" had
eclipsed the 200-donor mark in less than 11 hours.
He was so excited that he laid out another challenge:
$35,000 if 350 donors give during the 48-hour period that ends
I can't tell you how thankful I am to you if you've
already made your gift to the "Chair's Challenge."
If you haven't made a gift yet, there's still time to
help us us raise $35,000 in scholarship support for LWC
