COMMENCEMENT

COMMENCEMENT Commencement Lindsey Wilson capped off its largest graduating class in the college’s 114-year history on May 13 at the 2017 spring commencement ceremony held before a record crowd of over 3,000 guests. The college awarded a total of 282 undergraduate and graduate degrees during the college’s 105th commencement. Combined with the degrees awarded at last winter’s commencement ceremony, the Lindsey Wilson Class of 2017 was a record 689 students. To put Lindsey Wilson’s growth in perspective, the college awarded 312 degrees in 2003-04, the last year it held only one commencement ceremony. In her spring commencement address, Kentucky Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton told the graduates to “pray for guidance” in their careers. “My life is a life unplanned,” said Hampton. “If your life doesn’t go as you planned it’s truly okay. However, take the time to see the opportunity. It may not look like you thought it would look, but it’s there. Find the blessings and pray for guidance. Don’t wait decades before you start praying for guidance, because once I started doing that, that’s how I was lead to become Lt. Governor. And find something to be thankful for every day.” A.J. Robinson of Vine Grove, Ky., claps in celebration as he and his peers are named official graduates of Lindsey Wilson College at the 2017 spring commencement ceremony. 2 | LINDSEY WILSON COLLEGE | CORNERSTONE
