MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (March 3, 2019) — Milligan College welcomes Lisa Whelchel for the Eleanore L. Campbell Ladies Luncheon hosted by the Associated Ladies for Milligan (ALM) in partnership with 88.3 WCQR. The event will be held on Saturday, April 6, 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the college’s McCormick Dining Center located in Sutton Hall.

Whelchel is perhaps best known for her starring role as Blair Warner on NBC’s “The Facts of Life.” Today, she is the author of over a dozen books and an international speaker, having toured with “Women of Faith,” “Extraordinary Women” and “Women of Joy.” Whelchel participated in season 25 of CBS’s “Survivor: Philippines” and made a return to acting in feature films and on the small screen, including recent roles in Hallmark Channel Original Movies. She is a certified CoActive life coach and currently focuses most of her time on coming alongside others on their transformational journey to self-realization.

The Eleanore L. Campbell Ladies Lunch is an event for women of all ages to be spiritually fed and recharged through biblical teaching, uplifting music and fellowship with other women from throughout the region.

The purpose of ALM is to raise scholarship dollars for the college, be an outreach to the campus community and enrich women’s ministry in the local community. Proceeds raised from the event benefit the ALM Endowment to provide student scholarships at Milligan.

Registration is $35 and includes lunch. For more information and registration, visit www.milligan.edu/alm or call 423.461.8710.
