Quotes from LMC Alumni

Florence Johnson Cowan, class of 1932

" Fondest memories at LMC....The dedication and performance of my teachers...Ms. Emmanuel-Spanish; Henry Wilson-Chemistry and
William Bright-Biology."

Bessie Russell Stone, class of 1936

"Although "Rice" (as he was known in school) and I were married for 54 years and we did not "go together" until the summer we were graduated from college. Many of the male students were older than the girls because they were returning to college or had worked before entering...

Our athletic teams lost many games but as we improved whenever we could defeat Ky. State there was much rejoicing on the campus. Some of the male students who had attended Simmons U. (University) lived in the second floor apartment on Seventh street across from the school. It was called the "Pitch". Many social events were held there.

Lucy Clemmons Grisby, class of 1939

"I am pleased that the University finally sees fit to give some kind of recognition to LMC, which was unique in higher education, maintained very high standards, had a difficult but exciting curriculum, and was also a fun place for study and personal development of young people."

Margaret Duncan Holly, class of 1945

"There are plenty of fond memories of LMC, among them open communications with people, students and professors, and the wisdom my professor gave me. Attending an excellent liberal arts college as LMC prepared me to enter the workforce on more than one level, and prepared me to enter a world of competition."

Alscenia Warren Hodo, class of 1949

"The instructors were wonderful! They took the time to introduce first generation college students to more than what was found on the printed page. I was encouraged to reach for the stars."

Emmett Hatch Jr., Class of 1950

"Beating Kentucky State in Football in 1949."

" Getting the 'most' our of nothing, i.e., the teaching staff produced out of
a one block, 2 building campus, graduates that are second to none and
who have competed world-wide with honor."

"I learned from LMC that new books, new equipment and bigness have
their place but being challenged to think is never out of style, never out of
date and will be with you always".

Fred M. Williams, Class of 1951

"When LMC defeated Kentucky State in football-a first time victory."

Bessie Russell Stone, 1936, on Life on the Campus

"It was the depression and we paid our fees in installments...My sorority pin (AKA) cost $7.50 in 1934. We had teas, receptions parties, etc. Usually ground bologna was on the menu under many disguises. We dressed up
for social affairs.

The lunch room was in the basement of the Simmons U. Building. It was run
by Mr. Givens. It was a gathering place for the students, one the favorites
on the menu was transparent pie.

Students lived at home and most of the girls didn't have jobs. We entertained in our homes.
