Campus Leadership Recognition
L3 Student Leadership AwardsL3 stands for LIVE, LEARN, and LEAD, and has become the symbol for student leadership at Lindsey Wilson College. These students are applying the lessons of the classroom to everyday life. They are articulating clear ideas about life, motivating others around them and they are taking action to create change. An L3 student is making a difference through unselfish actions. Our campus also recognizes the efforts of committed Lindsey Wilson employees who are striving to grow leaders on campus by modeling faithful leadership. We applaud the efforts of faculty and staff for without them, we know the student experience would not be the same.

Previous Newman Civic Fellows
Newman Civic Fellows continue pursuing their platform from years past. Here's where they are now:
- Yayi Garcia - Yayi is currently employed by Lindsey Wilson College as the Program Manager for Bob’s Basket. Her passion for food insecurity launched her career to continue meeting the needs of Blue Raiders.
- Lindsay Daniel - Her platform was access to education for low-income, first-generation students. Lindsay Butler works here at the college as an FYE Advisor and part-time admissions counselor.
- Kennedy Selbe - Their platform was centered around creating opportunities for appropriate dialogue in the field of women and gender studies. They went on to the University of Louisville to obtain their Masters in Women and Gender Studies and are now looking towards a career in higher education.
- Zane Garner - As the Fellow during an election year passionate about politics, it should be no surprise that Zane's platform was voter education. He is in his second year of law school at the University of Kentucky.
- Ashley Smith - Ashley Wright has a heart for the least of these. Her platform connected how poverty, lack of education, and poor health create a cycle that can seem impossible to break out of. She is entering her second year of medical school at the University of Louisville.
