Work Awards
PIPPA PASSES, Ky. — Alice Lloyd College held its annual Student Work Awards and Olympics on Thursday, April 18th. During this assembly, one student worker from each department and area is awarded for their hard work, perseverance, and dedication to their work-study position.

President Joe Alan Stepp addressed the crowd, telling them a story about a young girl who used to attend Alice Lloyd College. She hated her work-study job so much that, after fighting to have it changed unsuccessfully, she set her mind on transferring to a new school. However, after speaking to her mother, she came back one day with a new realization: if she failed to complete her college degree, she would have to hold a job much like the one she hated for the rest of her life. From then on, she worked hard at her work-study job and did it well. She graduated with her degree from Alice Lloyd, with little to no debt, and went on to achieve great things in her life. The story was just one more example of learn the extraordinary opportunity offered to Alice Lloyd students to earn their education through the College’s Student Work Program.

After the ceremony, students gathered in the meadow to compete with their work-study teams against each other in the Student Work Olympics.

Alice Lloyd College is extremely proud of its students and thankful for the hard work they put into their work-study assignments.

Below is a list of all of the day’s honorees.
