Lindsey Wilson College dedicated two buildings and received a $400,000 gift on Friday.
The Goodin Nursing & Counseling Center, a two-story facility, includes skills laboratories, such as a simulated hospital floor; computer suites; classrooms, and areas for training, evaluation and study. It is named in honor of Lindsey Wilson alumnus and trustee Dr. Robert Goodin and his wife, Carol, of Louisville.
The Appalachian Regional Commission on Friday awarded the college a $400,000 grant for buying equipment for the nursing program.
Also dedicated Friday was McCandless Hall, a dormitory named in honor of longtime trustee Jerry McCandless and his wife, Kendrick, of Campbellsburg.
Never miss a local story.
The one-story residence hall can house about 120 students. It is the second dorm the Columbia college has opened in two years.
Lindsey Wilson has more than 1,000 students living on campus this year.
