Kentucky Wesleyan College has named the Welcome Center in Activity Hall for Larry (1964 graduate) and Lamone Mayfield in appreciation of their investment in KWC’s newest facility.
KWC acquired the former Legacy Owensboro building at 3300 Frederica St. in December 2019. The building has become a multipurpose venue benefitting the College and community.
Larry Mayfield earned his degree in business administration and has put it to use as a bank executive for more than 35 years. He currently serves on the board of directors at Independence Bank after previously holding responsibilities as executive vice president and president.
“When I heard what Activity Hall is and will become, I was so proud of my College for making a positive move to help students become the best they can be in life — in every way,” Mayfield said. “I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of this project and KWC’s mission. I encourage others to consider supporting this cause.”
Weekly chapel services and other Campus Ministries activities, class meetings, honors convocation, a theatre production, band, choir and athletics practices have already taken place in 20,000-square-foot Activity Hall.
“We are extremely grateful to Larry and Lamone for their investment in Activity Hall and look forward to sharing their investment with countless guests who will continue to use this magnificent facility,” said KWC President Thomas Mitzel.
