Student realizes Make-A-Wish dream, graduates from Lipscomb University


NASHVILLE, TENN — When Lincoln Rogers was stricken with kidney cancer in high school, he didn’t ask the Make-A-Wish Foundation for a trip or a chance to meet someone famous. He asked for a college education at Lipscomb University. Make-A-Wish and Lipscomb fulfilled his request, awarding him a scholarship. Now, five years later, he has realized his dream, graduating from Lipscomb with a bachelor of science degree in biology.
“Lipscomb has meant the world to me,” Rogers said. “It has not only blessed me with education, but also with friendships and mentors, and it has allowed me to see what I want to do with my life. I can’t explain what joy being at Lipscomb has brought to my life.”
Through Rogers’ five years at Lipscomb, he never lost faith, even when his cancer returned his freshman year and forced him to spend nine months in and out of the hospital.
“While I was going through this relapse, I just kept praying, ‘Please let me get back to the place that I love,’” he said.
