Kentucky Wesleyan College is known for its tremendous sports teams, with over half of the students being involved in a sport here it makes for a pretty competitive atmosphere. Every  year our college puts on a banquet honoring these student athletes, teams, coaches, seniors and  all of their accomplishments throughout the year. If you have ever watched the ESPYS put on by ESPN honoring all of their pro athletes and their outstanding performances they have had throughout the year, well our college puts on the WESPYS honoring Wesleyan student athletes
and their accomplishments.

During this banquet held at the end of each year when most of the sports team are completed there is a dinner for all of the teams as well as a ceremony where many people will be honored. There are different awards that are given out to different teams such as highest GPA which for men was received by the cross country team and for the women was received by the softball team. Other awards such as best performance of the year and there are several other awards as well given out to the teams. But Wesleyan does something special for its seniors; each senior on every team receives a picture collage from there time at Wesleyan.

Bart Darrell our president here at the college shakes each seniors hand and thanks them for their commitment, hard work, and dedication they have put in to be a student athlete at Kentucky Wesleyan. President Bart Darrell is very into the athletics at our college, he tries to attend as many sports games as possible and get as involved in our college as much as he can. Everyone knows how hard it is to keep up with your grades and classes but as a student athlete they not only have to do that but they have to also attend practice while dealing with school to keep their eligibility. Each student must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA in order to participate in the sport they are involved in. So the WESPYS knows how hard it can be for student athletes and they wanted to find a sentimental way honoring the seniors for their dedication for the last four years and they do this by providing them with a big moral of picture collages so they can remember their time here at Wesleyan.

At each WESPYS there is also a guest speaker that comes to present the banquet, this year the WESPYS falls on Wednesday April 19th, 2017. The college hopes that as many student athletes from Wesleyan can come to this event and be honored and just to be a part of this event and atmosphere. Without these student athletes we wouldn’t be the college we are today and we wouldn’t be known for all of those outstanding sports teams. So the WESPYS is just a way Kentucky Wesleyan College tries to honor it’s student athletes for their performances on and off the field, court, etc. So no matter what sport you’re in soccer, baseball, track and field, football, softball, etc.

Come on out to the WESPYS Wednesday night and join us for a night filed with food, laughter, and awards. This night was made for our student athletes at Kentucky Wesleyan College and we wouldn’t want you missing out!
