COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The life of a Lindsey Wilson College student will affect future generations of LWC students through a new scholarship. The Caleb Capps Baseball Memorial Scholarship will be presented annually to an LWC baseball player from Adair, Barren, Cumberland, Green, Hart, Metcalf, Monroe or Russell counties.

Capps was an LWC freshman on a baseball scholarship when he died of injuries suffered in a Sept. 6, 2012, vehicle accident in rural Adair County. His parents, Danny and Margie Capps, initiated the scholarship earlier this year with a 5K race in Edmonton. The May 4 event attracted 210 runners and helped raise $5,000 for the scholarship.
