This Week's Featured Student: Lindsey (Roach) Holt

Lindsey (Roach) Holt, from Lubbock, chose Lubbock Christian University because she wanted a high quality Christian education with a variety of involvement opportunities … and something that was affordable. Could such a place exist? Holt says “LCU turned out to be the perfect fit for what I wanted.”


An English major with an emphasis in Professional Writing, Holt’s favorite class so far has been Advanced Composition. She describes it as one of her most challenging classes, and perhaps one of the most surprising. Non-Fiction could be interesting? One might argue that Holt just got lucky … dream university, dream classes … but this is not the exception to the rule at LCU.


Favorite Honors moment? “Traveling to Ft. Davis with Dr. Fehr and my sister to attend a history conference. She presented. I watched and ate cookies.”
After graduation, Holt’s vision for her life is to find a job, get a puppy, and begin putting the majority of her paycheck towards student loans. “You know, living the college graduate dream.”


Holt works in the University Writing Center, is a member of the Women’s social club Christliche Damen, and is a member of the LCU Praise Choir. Quirky fact? “I eat goldfish two at a time- one for each side of my mouth. If there is only one, I bite it in half.”

Mrs. Ronna Privett, who nominated Holt for recognition, says the following: “Lindsey is hoping to present at NCUR in the Spring [2015] and is working on her abstract to submit. She is also working to get an internship for the Spring semester for her senior capstone course. Even though she currently has a job that would allow her to intern, she wants to expand her area of experience, so she is looking at potential area businesses that could give her a new opportunity. She is an amazingly self-motivated and organized student with great ideas.”
