COLUMBIA, KY. -- Members of the Lindsey Wilson College community gathered Thursday evening to remember a student and teammate who died in a car accident on Monday, Sept. 19 during a head-on collision in Taylor County, Ky. 

Organized by the LWC Student Government, the vigil for Brittany Nicole Taylor, 18, was held Thursday evening at Blue Raider Stadium. Brittany was a Lindsey Wilson College freshman and thrower on the track and field team. She was a commuting student from Green County.

LWC throws coach Jacob Carter said that Taylor was a sweet, kind-hearted young woman that worked hard at practice every single day.

"I'm deeply saddened by the loss of Brittany and extend my condolences to her family and friends," said Carter. "She was a teammate, a friend, a sister, and a daughter who will be dearly missed by many, but never forgotten. She will forever be a Blue Raider - we carry her spirit on."

Taylor is fondly remembered by her admissions counselor Charity Ferguson for her positive attitude and personality.

"Brittany was as sweet and pleasant as any student I have ever worked with -- she always had a smile on her face."

Brittany's family, dozens of students, friends and teammates attended the vigil.

Funeral services were held Friday, September 23 in Greensburg, Ky.
