Anna Mary Hack Byrdwell supports Campbellsville University because "I never considered going anywhere else," she says. Anna is a Campbellsville University trustee and Church Relations Council member. She is a 1960 graduate and was voted most popular student her senior year. Anna takes pride in being part of the first four-year graduating class from CU, making her and her classmates pioneers.

She taught music for the LaRue County school system in Kentucky, was on the staff of the Kentucky Woman's Missionary Union and is a member of Hurstbourne Baptist Church where she serves as a deacon, choir member and substitute Sunday school teacher. Anna is also the coordinator for Women on Mission at her church.

In 2005, Anna was awarded the Distinguished Alumnus Award from CU. Her brother, John Albert Hack, and sister-in-law, Joyce Elaine Harmon Hack, attended CU as well.

"It was special to me to make a gift toward three seats in the Ransdell Chapel with our names on them," Anna says. "Campbellsville University is very dear to me and has had a very dominant influence in who I am today."

Anna has named CU as the beneficiary of her life insurance policy. Through this gift she is ensuring CU will continue to produce pioneers for years to come.

She resides in Louisville, Ky., with her 4-year-old silky terrier named Prince Charming.
