Homecoming 2017 Highlights from Kentucky Wesleyan College on Vimeo.

Make plans to join us for Homecoming 2018 – September 28-30!!

Alumni traveled from Japan, Nigeria, California, the Northeast and all points in between to celebrate Homecoming 2017 on campus and throughout the Owensboro/Daviess County area October 6-8. Alumni and Athletic Hall of Famers were enshrined, and Alumni Award recipients honored for their service and commitment to Kentucky Wesleyan. There was even a special presentation by the Mayor of Owensboro, Tom Watson, as he gave the Key to the City to each member of our Alumni Hall of Fame Class of 2017.

Golfers teed it up at both the Panther Athletic Fund and Sigma Nu Golf scrambles, while the Wesleyan Singers offered a Homecoming Concert that echoed throughout the campus from Tapscott Chapel. The Class of 1967 celebrated its 50th Reunion and was welcomed into the Golden Jubilee Club.
