Lindsay Daly Jamison was a member of the Lipscomb Lady Bisons basketball team that earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament in 2004. She serves as program director for the Youth Life Learning Center here in Nashville working with at-risk youth. Two months ago she married Joshua Jamison. Despite her demanding schedule she found time to answer some questions for Lipscombsports.com.
What sport did you play at Lipscomb? What years? Who were your coaches?
“I played basketball from 2001-2005 for Coach Frank Bennett and Billy Snell.”
What is your fondest athletic memory at Lipscomb?
“I have so many it's really difficult to choose, but winning the A-Sun tournament is definitely at the top of my list as well as playing in the NCAA tournament.”
Who had the biggest influence on you during your athletic career at Lipscomb? How?
“All of my coaches played a great part in molding and shaping me during my time at Lipscomb. They lived and coached with integrity and it was easy to trust their leadership because of that.
“On a non-athletic side, Kelley Wade Owens also played a huge role in my life and continues to be one of my closest friends. She took the time to disciple me and challenge me in my relationship with God. I grew so much spiritually and helped sure up the Biblical foundation I live my life on.”
What is your fondest non-athletic memory from your time at Lipscomb?
“I would have to say the trip to South Dakota Reservation or attending Campus Harvest with a group of Lipscomb students. Campus Harvest is a conference put on by Every Nation ministries each year with college students coming from all over the country. It was amazing to gain new friendships and hear what God was doing on campuses all over the United States!”
What is the most valuable thing you gained or learned from your time at Lipscomb?
“During my time at Lipscomb I found what I was called to do. Through practicum experiences and our class to the Reservation in South Dakota, I realized that one of my greatest passions is working with children and families living in oppressed situations. That directly influenced the career choice I took coming out of college.”
Who was your favorite professor? Why?
“I had some really great professors during my four years, but Dr. Jones was one of my favorites. He led our class trip to Piney Ridge, S.D. which was by far my favorite class at Lipscomb!”
Where do you live now?
Who is your employer? What is your occupation? What does your position entail?
“I am the Program Director for the Youth Life Learning Center. We provide faith-based, after-school programming for at-risk youth. We focus heavily on individualized academic and character development and work with our students’ school teachers and families to make sure they have supports they need. I oversee our 10 teachers, provide professional development, network with other community leaders to collaborate, and share about YLLC with potential volunteers and stakeholders.”
