How do you like that? “Aloha from the Lloyd”. That is sort of my hip way of saying “Greetings from Alice Lloyd College”. I think “Aloha” is a Hawaiian word for “hello” and is also used for “goodbye”. Maybe I have Hawaii on my mind because my wife wants to go to Hawaii on our 20th wedding anniversary. I doubt that happening, but we will save that story for another day.
The purpose of this letter is to ask you to click on this link and make a $1.00 donation to Alice Lloyd College. Yes, one dollar—not ten dollars—not ten thousand dollars—or not ten million dollars!
Please, please, please read on!
Alumni giving is a major part of the success and future of ALC. If alumni donate to the College, then foundations will donate larger amounts as a result. Here at ALC, we survive on private donations, and we accept no government funding. Alice Lloyd College survives on donations sent from people who believe in our purpose of educating Appalachian students.
Teresa Grender, our Director of Alumni Relations, contacted me back in 1998 asking me to serve on the Alumni Board as Chairman of the Alumni Giving Committee. At that time, the percentage of alumni who donated to ALC was about 8 percent. In the last 18 years, we have worked very hard and the giving percentage last year was 45 percent—the highest ever. Teresa and I are so proud, and you should be as well!
So why am I asking for $1.00? There are a couple of reasons.
First, I have probably watched too many times, the old “This is Your Life” video when Ralph Edwards, on national television, asked everyone in America to send one dollar to what was then called “Caney Junior College”. Close your eyes and try to imagine the excitement on campus when those $1.00 gifts from all across America began rolling in. I want the school to experience that kind of excitement again!
The second reason is that since I am now President of the Alumni Association, I am hanging up my spurs as Chairman of Alumni Giving. (No, I am not hanging up my ALC spurs. I will be on this campus until they make me leave.)
But, I want to go out with a bang! I want our alumni giving percentage to be the highest in the nation. Really, I do! I want to reach 50%. We will be legends! (This might even get us in the Guinness Book of World Records!)
So here is my plan! And, it’s so simple!
Just click on this link and send a dollar (Isn’t that a great plan? Thought it up myself!) It’s a quick and secure way to support the College.
My Dad passed away a little less than three years ago. I miss him every day and I think about him in everything I do, even while writing this letter. He wanted me to accomplish great things. From the day of my first recollection to the day of his death, he told me every day, as he put it, “Son, you have an obligation to society to make the world a better place”. I have accepted that I am not going to cure deadly diseases, put an end to world hunger, or lead the world to peace. But maybe—just maybe—if we keep doing our part at Alice Lloyd College, our graduates will change the world.
I started with “Aloha from the Lloyd” and that is how I will end.
Aloha from “The Lloyd”
Jerry Wayne Slone
Alumni Association President
P.S. The deadline is July 28, so please – pretty please – send your dollar today!
P.S.S. Be sure to contact your fellow alumni to get them to help too!!]]>
Jordan Maggard, from Viper, Kentucky, been very successful since graduating from Alice Lloyd College in the spring of 2009 with bachelor’s degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. Jordan is now a staff pharmacist at CVS Health in Hazard, Kentucky.
Jordan enrolled at Alice Lloyd College in 2005, after graduating from Perry County Central. He says that attending Alice Lloyd College was key in developing the strong work ethic that helped him through pharmacy school. “Not only did the Student Work Program help me to build a stronger resume, but it also helped me to gain an appreciation for hard work and perseverance.” Jordan worked in several different departments while at ALC including the Hunger Din, as a boy’s dormitory janitor, and finally as a teacher’s assistant for the biology department.
Now grateful for the experience, Jordan remembers that the Student Work Program was one reason among many why he chose to attend Alice Lloyd College. To begin, the College was very close to home for Jordan. In addition to this, he was offered an academic scholarship prior to attending ALC that made the cost of attendance for him even cheaper. He was able to graduate with his bachelor’s degree with very little debt.
After graduating from ALC, Jordan attended a local community college where he earned his Associates in Applied Science (Nursing). He then went on to the South College School of Pharmacy in Knoxville, Tennessee where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with his Doctorate of Pharmacy in 2015. He attributes his success in pharmacy school to ALC, saying “I believe that ALC gave me a very solid education to build upon.” Jordan says that he feels he was better prepared for the demanding and laborious academics of pharmacy school because of ALC’s rigorous biology program.
While Jordan reached his dream of becoming a pharmacist, he says that there is still a lot in store for his future. Jordan recently purchased a new home with his wife, and has plans to one day operate a compounding pharmacy in the area. Jordan’s advice to students is to always follow your dreams. He says, “Never give up, no matter how difficult things get. Always value and prioritize your education. With hard work and determination anything is possible.” Jordan would also like to thank his wife, Whitney, and his parents for all of their ongoing support and encouragement.]]>
The problem for Kala was never knowing what she wanted to study, but instead where she wanted to earn her degree from. She looked into several schools, but remembers that only one stood out beyond all others. She says, “I felt like I was given a sign to attend ALC. It was like God was telling me, ‘This is where you will find your next journey.’” The naturally beautiful aesthetics of ALC’s campus is what caught her attention first, but the college kept her attention when she learned about the work study program. Kala says, “I knew that by attending ALC that I would be able to focus on my academic success without having to stress over the financial burden that often accompanies college students.” In addition to this, Kala loved the fact that she would be able to have the complete college experience and still be close to home.
Since being on campus Kala has become involved with several organizations and has even taken on leadership roles within them. One organization she takes pride in being a part of is ALC’s Phi Beta Lambda, in which Kala serves as the committee’s treasurer. In addition to playing a vital role in PBL, Kala is also the Student Supervisor for the Marketing and Communications Department for her work-study at ALC. Student supervisors are not only held to higher expectations, but also work twice as many hours as the other students on campus. Being named student supervisor is a high honor, as there are only thirty some students on campus at a time who hold these positions. Despite the fact that she has to work more often, Kala says that she enjoys her work study. She loves getting to meet and learn from such wonderful people as she works alongside the Director of Marketing and Communications. However, the work environment is not the only place that feels like family to Kala. While working on her degree she has gotten to know her professors in the business department very well. She appreciates the fact that they not only care about her academic success, but her well-being as a whole. She says, “I know I can go to them if I need help with anything at all. The faculty and staff at ALC are so supportive of their students.”
Upon graduating from Alice Lloyd College, Kala hopes to use her business major to open up her own bakery or restaurant in Florida. She has always loved to bake and she believes this would be a great way to do what she loves while successfully running her own business. Kala believes that other students should make ALC their home away from home because of the small student-teacher ratio. She adds, “I am so grateful that I chose ALC. I wouldn’t want it any other way!” For Kala, Alice Lloyd College is a school like no other and has become her home away from home.]]>

On Saturday, May 7th, family and friends gathered at the Grady Nutt Athletic Center to watch this year’s graduates receive their degree from Alice Lloyd College.
In opening remarks, President Joe Stepp welcomed family and friends to the campus and praised graduates for their outstanding accomplishments. The Class of 2016 was blessed with a moving baccalaureate address from Reverend Lawrence Baldridge of Pippa Passes, Kentucky, who has been pastor of Caney Baptist Church since 1964. The commencement address was delivered by ALC alumnus George Nichols, III of Potomac, MD. George received a M.A. degree from the University of Louisville, a B.A. degree from Western Kentucky University and an A.A. degree from Alice Lloyd College. Today, George is the Senior Vice President of New York Life Insurance Company, in charge of the Office of Governmental Affairs.
Following the confirmation of degrees two graduates were recognized for their academic achievements. Dr. Claude “Lafie” Crum, Academic Dean, presented the salutatorian award to Katie McFarland. The prestigious valedictorian award was given to Maegyn Bates.
In addition to recognizing our graduates, President Stepp also presented two special awards to faculty and staff members. Dr. Rhonda L.

The June Buchanan Crusaders and Lady Crusaders tennis squads, under the direction of Coaches Jeff Jacobs and Freddy Hunt, made history on Tuesday, May 3rd by sweeping the 14th Regional Tennis Tournament. The matches were held at the Knott County Schools Tennis Complex. The games were played until one team earned the necessary three total wins needed to declare a victor. This marked the first ever regional championship for the boys while the girls won for the first time since 2009.
The two JBS teams both earned the right to play in the championship by virtue of defeating the Lee County Bobcats in the semi-finals without dropping a match.
For the ladies, senior Megan Hall and eighth grader Riele Holbrook both earned convincing singles victories (6-0: 6-0) while junior Ruby Yeary and freshman Anika Thacker won the clinching 3rd match (6-2: 6-4) to send their squad to the finals.
On the boy’s side, singles victories were earned by freshman Cage Watts (6-4: 6-0) and junior Griffith Fields (6-4: 6-2). Senior Daniel Snow and junior Trey Moore won the clinching third match (6-4: 6-4), advancing the club to the final round.
In the girl’s championship, the Lady Crusaders faced the Knott County Central Patriots. Eighth grader Hanna Hall and seventh grader Elisabeth Stepp got the club off to a good start with an impressive doubles victory (6-0: 6-2). Next, Yeary and Thacker kept the momentum rolling as they earned the second straight clutch victory in doubles play (6-3: 6-3). Holbrook fought hard in her singles match, but fell (6-1, 6-3). It was left up to the senior Hall, who was on top of her game in her singles match clincher (6-3: 6-2). This third team victory earned the big trophy for her jubilant squad.
In boy’s action, JBS faced the Perry Central Commodores. Colton Jacobs delivered a much needed singles win in inspired fashion (6-1: 6-0) to start things off in the Crusaders favor. Next, Snow and Moore delivered the critical second match while displaying outstanding form, (6-2: 6-0). Conner Jacobs and Fields then battled tooth and nail in doubles play before falling (6-3: 6-1). Realizing that one victory was needed for the gold, Watts was rock solid as he earned the historic singles win (6-4: 6-0) to deliver the big trophy to his ecstatic teammates.
After the match, an elated Coach Jacobs stated, “We are so proud of both squads for earning solid victories in the team championships and earning a trip to the KHSAA State Tournament on May 14th in Lexington, Ky. I am especially happy for our two seniors, Megan and Daniel. They each earned victories in both rounds and displayed steady senior leadership. Our young players also stepped up in a big way and were really solid under pressure. It was definitely a total team effort.”]]>
Megan Jones, a senior from Paintsville, KY, continued her steady play once again as she led the Lady Eagles at the plate during the week.
Over 4 games against Berea and University of Pikeville, Jones went 8-13 from the plate with 7 singles and 1 triple. She also scored 6 runs. She completed her week by batting. .615]]>
Smith is no stranger to Caney Creek. The Clay County native is a graduate of Alice Lloyd College where he was a member of the Eagles basketball team. He served one season as a student assistant before being chosen as the Head Assistant Coach of the Eagles.
During his four year tenure assisting ALC, the Eagles finished runner-up in the KIAC Tournament and earned a bid to the NCCAA National Tournament this year in Lake Winona, Indiana.
Smith felt the opportunity to take over as the mentor of the Crusaders was the right calling for him. “I feel so blessed to be selected for this position. Basketball is a passion of mine and I love seeing young men improve both on and off the court. Having a chance to become the coach at JBS and obtain the opportunity to have a positive impact on student’s lives was just too good of an offer for me to pass up”.
Gary D. Stepp, the Athletic Director at June Buchanan, spoke highly of the new coach. “I have known and observed Wes for some time and have been extremely impressed by his passion and love of the game. Additionally, he is a high-character young man who possesses an incredible work ethic. He will set high standards for our student-athletes and develop them toward achieving these standards. More than that, however, he is a quality individual who will serve as an excellent role-model, not just our young men, but for all of our students. We feel fortunate to have him as a member of our staff.”
When asked about his expectations for his club, Smith replied, “My ultimate goal for the June Buchanan Crusaders is to have a team that can compete for regional championships and succeed on the state level. JBS has been known as a solid program in the past and I fully intend to continue that path”.
Smith is the son of Ricky and Vickie Smith of Manchester, Ky.]]>
Highly regarded West Virginia Tech University captured the lead in the last inning and held on to defeat the home standing Alice Lloyd Eagles 7-4 on Saturday at Pippa Passes, Kentucky.
The Eagles survived WVT’s early run and answered with of their own in the fourth scoring on a sacrifice fly by Ronnie Saylor.
