Three Taylor County residents recently received degrees from Lindsey Wilson College.

The three were among 247 graduates who were awarded degrees - 176 undergraduate degrees and 71 graduate degrees - at the college's 2007 winter commencement on Dec. 15.

Kentucky Hall of Fame journalist Al Smith delivered the commencement address to a crowd of more than 1,500 guests in Biggers Sports Center. In his address, Smith praised the graduates for the obstacles they overcame to earn a degree.

"The fight for a second chance, for a fresh start is in the Kentucky DNA, in the legacy from the settlers who crossed the Cumberland Gap, traveled the Wilderness Road with [Daniel] Boone," Smith said.

Local students who received degrees were:

- Tiffany Burris of Campbellsville received a degree in elementary education.

- Kelly Graham of Campbellsville received a degree in social science.

- Jane Richerson of Campbellsville received a degree in Christian ministries.
