COLUMBIA — A Lawrence County resident is featured in Lindsey Wilson College’s new student viewbook.

Randi Jean Wilson of Louisa is featured in the college’s 2003-04 viewbook, which is distributed to all Kentucky high school seniors.

“It’s an honor to be featured in my college’s viewbook,” said Wilson, who is the daughter of Marcus and Reta Wilson. “My two years at Lindsey Wilson have opened up a whole new world to me and introduced me to a variety of people from different cultures all over the world.”

She is a student ambassador for the college, she is a member of Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and Alpha Chi national honor society, she has been named to the college’s Dean’s list every semester at the college, and she was the 2003 recipient of the Noma Dix Winston History Award.

The Winston Award is given annually to the college’s outstanding history major.

“Discovering the history of people, places, events and the world is like reading a favorite book — except it never ends,” said Wilson, who is a history and communication junior at Lindsey Wilson. “And like Winston Churchill once said, ‘The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.’”

Lindsey Wilson officials said that Wilson was selected for the viewbook because she “epitomizes what it means to be a well-rounded student.”

“Randi is among the leaders of our student body, and she has excelled both in the classroom and in her extracurricular activities as well,” said David Alls, Lindsey Wilson’s director of admissions/marketing. “Her successes are not only a credit to her family, but also to her teachers and counselors at Lawrence County High School who prepared her for college.”
