Jacqueline Nix Honors Her Father and Helps CU Grow Its Endowment
When Jacqueline Sue Nix '63 made a decision to honor the memory of her father, the Rev. Thomas C. Nix, it was with the donation of a charitable gift annuity to Campbellsville University.
The Rev. Nix grew up in Murray and his life was dedicated in service to the Lord's work through the Baptist Church. His daughter said as she remembered growing up with him, "When I pictured God, my father's was the face I saw."
After graduating from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, the Rev. Nix was pastor of churches in Fayette, Fleming, Clinton, Garrard and Woodford counties. He preceded his wife, Gladys Parks Nix, in death at the age of 88. Their daughter Jacqueline is a resident of Lexington.
In a message from the pastor at one of his church's dedication services, the Rev. Nix wrote to his congregation, "What does the future hold for us? Unlimited possibilities. The future is as broad as our vision. Our achievements will be determined by the degree of loyalty, consecration and devotion to the Master. May the forward spirit of the past, the challenge of the present, stimulate and inspire us for a grand tomorrow."
It is in that same spirit—looking to our future at CU—in which CU accepts his daughter's gift in his memory. The scholarship will be named the Thomas Nix Endowed Scholarship in the CU School of Theology.
Nix is a volunteer at several organizations, including Cardinal Hill Hospital where she plays the organ. Nix is a former school teacher. She went to CU with the Rev. Al Hardy, who is the former dean of academic support at CU. Hardy and Benji Kelly, vice president for development, recently visited Nix at her Lexington home.
Commitments like those of Nix are critical in moving Campbellsville University toward her endowment goal and beyond.
