After a three-month postponement, Alice Lloyd College introduced the Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2020. The ceremony typically takes place on campus each October during the Appalachia Day Homecoming festivities, but unfortunately, that event was postponed due to COVID-19. At last, on January 30th, 2021, four worthy recipients were finally able to have their names added to this elite fraternity. They were recognized at the Perry Campus Center on “Coach J Court” between the basketball doubleheader against Asbury University. This year’s inductees are David Adams, Brandon Arnold, Cody Hyden, and Ariel Nickell.

I was born and raised near Cincinnati, Ohio. At the age of 15, I found my home in Eastern Kentucky after the death of my mother, who was raising me on her own. I graduated from Red Bird Christian School in 1989 and received my BA in Early Elementary Education (K-4) from Alice Lloyd College in 1995. That same year, I married my husband, Mike.
Dr. Cody Reynolds grew up in Phelps, Kentucky – a small town teetering on the edge of the Kentucky and West Virginia border. In high school, Cody was recognized as a Kentucky Governor’s Scholar, opening up the opportunity for scholarships to collegiate institutions statewide. However, something about Alice Lloyd College stood out to him – something about Pippa Passes felt like home. “Another small town with roots in service that quickly became the theme of my life,” he says.
Alice Lloyd College hosted its third annual Alumni Purpose Day on June 11. Although distance and pandemic health guidelines separated alumni from each other and the College, the day was spent reconnecting through social media and sharing memories of time on the ALC campus.
Dear ALC Class of 2020, you know what perseverance looks like. You know that achievements are more than a trophy on a shelf. You know hard work isn’t always noticed by others, but is rewarding in itself. You know all these things and so much more not only because of the COVID-19 Pandemic but also because you are graduates of Alice Lloyd College.
