Lauren King named 2014 Miss Lipscomb...
Miss Lipscomb recipient Lauren King has a passion for people and for the university.
A rising senior and Nashville native, King is a Bible major with a youth ministry and preaching emphasis.
“I love Lipscomb a whole lot, and working for admissions has even grown my love for Lipscomb, just knowing more about our school and what we do and the effort that we put to get students here,” King said.
At first, King did not expect to be able to come to Lipscomb. However, her involvement with non-profit Christian-based organization RAVE ministries opened up the opportunity to be a part of this campus.
“I’ve just tried to make this experience as much as I possibly can with my involvement that I’ve grown on campus,” King said. “It’s just been awesome to be more involved in the community.”
King gets to travel around to schools, churches and youth rallies to speak to teenage girls about gossip, self-image and sexual temptations.
“My involvement in RAVE helped me find my desire for youth ministry and one of the reasons why I’m a ministry major,” King said, “I’ve gotten to meet some really cool girls around the country that I’ve gotten to build relationships with.”
King enjoys building relationships with people both on and off campus. One of her favorite things about Lipscomb, she said, is the community.
“I just know that it’s a dream for me to come to Lipscomb,” King said. “I love this community so much and what it means to me.”
Besides working with Lipscomb admissions and RAVE ministries, King is also a member of social club Pi Delta. King was the chaplain for Pi Delta this semester. She is also involved in the male social club Theta Psi.
“I’m one of their honorary female members,” King said.
King played Ultimate Frisbee during her freshman and sophomore years, and was involved in Stompfest and Singarama as well. In this year’s Singarama, King was part of the winning show “Drop,” in which she was a lead character. King also interned with Lipscomb’s Campus Ministry.
The Miss Lipscomb and Bachelor of Ugliness titles are given to one female and one male Lipscomb student who best exemplify Lipscomb University’s values and principles.
