Twenty-nine LWC students attedned a daylong "Get Motivated" business seminar at Lexington's Rupp Arena.

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- A group of Lindsey Wilson College students "got motivated" recently at a daylong business seminar in Lexington, Ky. The 29 LWC students attended the popular "Get Motivated" seminar on Sept. 28 at Rupp Arena.

The seminar attracted more than 15,000 people, who heard from a roster of speakers that included University of Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Gen. Colin Powell, Forbes president and CEO Steve Forbes and former college football coach Lou Holtz.

"This was one of the most enjoyable and informative seminars I've ever attended," said Kenton Ryan Lee, an LWC freshman from Danville, Ky.

LWC senior Brett Boles said that he learned from Powell that, "It doesn't matter where you start in life, it's where you end up."

Holtz taught him that, "If you don't have hope, you aren't dreaming; everything starts with a dream."

The students' trip was funded by the LWC Horizons Program, which provides funds for student activities that develop a broader worldview through study-related fieldwork and travel.

The students were from a business applications course led by Director of Community Education and Outreach Linda Grider and a leadership communication course led by Assistant Professor of Communication Anne Streeter. Also attending the event were students from LWC's Somerset Community Campus, who were accompanied by Somerset Community Campus Coordinator Kesha McClure-Hunley.
