HOPKINS COUNTY, KY—Around noon today, August 20th, approximately 25 community members showed up at the Madisonville Community College to celebrate the official induction of Lindsey Wilson College into our community and local college campus.
With a variety of attendees, including Hopkins County Judge/Executive, Donnie Carroll, and Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce President, Harriett Whitaker—not to mention several MCC Staff members, Lindsey Wilson College associates, and students—the official ribbon cutting ceremony drew in several sections of our community.
iSurf News spoke with the Site Coordinator of Lindsey Wilson’s Madisonville Campus, Ashley Mitchell, to find out more on the event.
“Today we are doing our ribbon cutting with the Chamber of Commerce,” said Mitchell. “Joining with the Chamber of Commerce is actually one of the main reasons we’re able to have Lindsey Wilson College in the community.”
Mitchell explained that, “We are also doing this as a way to let people know that we are opening a counseling center here at the Madisonville Community College. It’s a service for the students here at the campus. We offer assistance with any needs the students may have, whether it be stress or even something bigger than that. There’s just not really any other counseling service around here.”
After an introduction by Chamber President, Harriett Whitaker, Lindsey Wilson College’s Dr. Martin C. Wesley and John Rigney thanked the community for partnering with them and promised their full “commitment” in return. In addition, MCC’s President, Judy Roads, also offered up kind words on the partnership.
Following their respective speeches, the big wooden scissors came out and the ribbon was cut to the applause of those in attendance.
