Lindsay Anderson wins Michael C. Wallace Award


Lindsay Anderson, daughter of Les and Cindy Anderson, was the recipient of the Michael C. Wallace Award at the Woodford County High School Senior Class Night Awards program on May 23. The award is given to a graduating senior who best exemplifies the outstanding qualities of scholastics, athletics and leadership. Lt. Michael C. Wallace, oldest son of Jack and Carolyn Wallace, brother of Meg and Matthew, died at the age of 26 in August 1987 of acute leukemia while serving in the U.S. Navy. His family gives the award each year in his memory. Wallace was a 1979 graduate of Woodford County High School and commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Navy upon graduation with the class of 1983 of the United States Naval Academy. Lindsay is an honor student with a cumulative GPA of 4.212. Her leadership roles include NHS and Beta Club, Key Club, Mentors and Meals, teaching Sunday school, Woodford Leadership Tomorrow, and being a special education tutor. Anderson lettered in cross country. She is captain of the varsity softball team and is currently helping to lead this team to a 5th in the state ranking (highest in state history) and a current record of 24-2. Lindsay's plans for next year are to play Division 1 softball at Morehead State University and major in special education. Pam Duncan, a teacher at WCHS, presented the award, a silver Revere Bowl, to Lindsay. Her name will be added to the plaque that hangs in the Michael C. Wallace Memorial Library at WCHS.
