Celebrate! 2015-16

Celebrate! 2015-16 alumni profile: Jerald BRYANT ’94 Blue Raider blood runs through the veins of alumnus Jerald Bryant. Bryant came to LWC in fall 1990 from Jacksonville, Fla. But even after he graduated in 1994, the college remained with him. “I didn’t ever really leave Lindsey Wilson,” said Bryant, who is president of the LWC National Alumni Association. “I graduated, I started a family and followed a career, but Lindsey Wilson never really left me. I just always felt compelled to give back and be involved any way that I could.” Following a successful career in the corporate retail world, Bryant and his wife, Beverly, an Adair County native and 1993 LWC graduate, returned to the region around 2011 to plant a church. Jerald and Beverly pastor Antioch Christian Life Ministries, which straddles the Adair-Taylor county line. Their oldest child, Isaiah, is a member of LWC’s Class of 2018. Bryant said what is most remarkable about his alma mater is how it lights a fire in those who come in contact with the college. “Lindsey Wilson has lit a torch in everybody, so there is more light not only here but throughout the world because of Lindsey Wilson,” he said. Bryant came to LWC as a student during an historic time in the college – the third baccalaureate class had just graduated and soccer had been added as a sport. Since then, enrollment has almost tripled and the college’s A.P. White Campus has expanded from about 45 acres to more than 200. In addition to a bachelor’s of arts and sciences degree, LWC now offers master’s degrees as well as a doctoral program. “Seeing those things happen makes you feel good about Lindsey Wilson and where it is headed,” Bryant said. “It’s just a very good time to be involved with this college.” Longtime Lindsey Wilson College staff member Nancy Sinclair was named “Remarkable Raider” in February by the college's Student Government Association. The award is given annually to an LWC staff member who the LWC SGA officers believe embodies the college's mission of serving "every student, every day." A Master of Business Administration (MBA) is the latest addition to Lindsey Wilson’s online programs. The college was approved to begin coursework in the fall 2016 semester. The Breakfast with Fred Leadership Institute completed a two-day visit on April 12-13 to the A.P. White Campus of Lindsey Wilson College. Nineteen business leaders met with more than 800 students during the event. The 2015-16 school year concluded with one of the largest graduating classes in college history. Combined with the 412 degrees the college awarded last winter, Lindsey Wilson awarded a total of 656 undergraduate and graduate degrees this school year, the second most in the 113-year history of The United Methodist-affiliated college. LWC acquires the fairgrounds property. After more than a year of serious negotiations, a land exchange agreement was finalized. Under the arrangement, the Columbia VFW Post 6097 transferred the ownership of the property located at 411 Fairground Street to Lindsey Wilson College. LWC Professor of Religion and Dean of the Chapel Terry Swan and Assistant Professor of Religion Curt Lee published A Noble Mind – a book of essays about moral debates in the 21st century. A number of current and former LWC professors and alumni contributed to the work including Instructors of Religion Cinda Swan and Dennis Crump, Associate Professor of Religion David Calhoun, LWC alumnus Ronald Kaluya and former LWC counseling professors Jennifer and Daniel Williamson. 27

“ We also like to be associated with winning programs – and when you are part of Lindsey Wilson, you are part of a winning organization.” Bob Holloway 1925-2016 Mr. Lindsey Wilson College Thank You 28 Robert Holloway, who led the Lindsey Wilson College Board of Trustees during more than a decade of phenomenal growth, died on May 20. He was 91. Holloway, who was a Middletown, Ky., resident, was chair of the Lindsey Wilson Board of Trustees from 1998- 2011, a period when “Lindsey Wilson came of age.” “During its 113-year history, Lindsey Wilson College has been blessed with wonderful leaders, and Bob Holloway stands at the top of the list as one of this college’s most important leaders,” said Lindsey Wilson President William T. Luckey Jr., who has served as the college’s eighth president since July 1, 1998. “Not long after I became president, Bob assumed chair of the board, and for more than a decade he was an indispensable adviser to me as well as respected voice on the board. “In many ways, Bob was Mr. Lindsey Wilson College – he was our leader who guided this college through its most dynamic expansion, a period when Lindsey Wilson came of age as a college. He and his wife, Doris, have their fingerprints all over this college.” During Holloway’s tenure as board chair, Lindsey Wilson’s budget expanded from less than $20 million to more than $52 million; enrollment grew from 1,463 to 2,600; the size of the faculty increased from about 50 to more than 100; and several major buildings were added to the college’s A.P. White Campus. Also during Holloway’s tenure, the size of Lindsey Wilson’s graduating class expanded so much that in 2004-05 college officials split graduation into a winter and spring commencement ceremony. Holloway also played a key role in supporting two of Lindsey Wilson’s major buildings. In the mid-1980s, he led fundraising efforts for a new building to house the college’s Katie Murrell Library. The new building – which was subsequently named the Holloway Building in memory of his parents, Gertrude and Peak – opened in 1987 and allowed Lindsey Wilson to make the transition from a junior college into a baccalaureate liberal arts college. About 15 years later, Holloway and his wife committed more than $1 million
