My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Lyon College
Location: Batesville AK
I challenged myself today to find a college I had never heard of. I started with the states alphabetically and when I got to Arkansas I came across Lyon College.
Founded as Arkansas College by Arkansas Presbyterians, Lyon College opened its doors in September 1872.
In 1994, it adopted the name Lyon College to honor a family that had served it with distinction for more than a half-century. After a renewal of the decades-old discussion of changing the name, on the grounds that “Arkansas College” was too commonplace to express its distinction, the venerable school become Lyon College.
On the athletic side Lyon College reinstated football in 2013 after a 62-year hiatus. Lyon also announced in 2013, that men’s and women’s wrestling would be added to the roster of sports.
Lyon College is an NAIA member.
