Lindsey Wilson College Board of Trustees Chair Allan Parnell of Louisville, KY, presented a facsimile check of $416,765.59 to LWC President William T. Luckey Jr., at Blue Raider Stadium on Saturday, Nov.5, at the end of the first quarter of the Blue Raiders vs. Bethel (Tenn.) University football game.
Parnell pledged that if the College got 1,000 donors to give Nov. 1-2 to LWC scholarships, he would add $100,000 to scholarship aid. The campaign was so successful by the end Nov. 1, President William T. Luckey Jr. urged the LWC community to continue giving and reach 1,903 donors to symbolize the college’s founding year, 1903. The two-day campaign, dubbed “All In For LWC,” attracted 1,934 gifts totaling $416,765.59 with 494 unique gifts contributed by the student body.
