COLUMBIA, Ky. — The Lindsey Wilson College community continued four days of environmental awareness Tuesday with a campuswide celebration of Earth Day.

To mark the 44th anniversary of the day of global awareness about the environment, the LWC community dedicated a tree to the late Carolyn Keefe of Columbia and held a day of activities on the Campus Quadrangle. Keefe, who was an LWC English professor from 1997-2009, died last year. During her service on the LWC faculty, Keefe led the campus’ Earth Day activities.
From April 21-24, the LWC Office of Student Activities coordinated campus-wide recycling activities and other events designed to raises students’ understanding about the environment.
