Meet Women of Vision Council Members
Diana Nixon, Secretary
Diana, a 1980 CN grad, serves as the secretary on the Women of Vision Council.  She takes the minutes at the meetings and helps with any other communication needs. She and her husband Ken have a blended family of four children and ten grandchildren. She works part-time at Central Baptist Church of Fountain City, and loves spending any free time hiking in the mountains. She also does "sing-alongs" at nursing homes, mentors at Lonsdale Elementary School, and teaches ladies Bible study classes.  She is one busy lady! 

Diana has great memories of serving as a dorm parent along with her first husband, Mark Sargent (now deceased), in Alumni Dorm when it was still a men's dorm.  Her two young sons often awoke to find that a comic book or a candy bar had been pushed under their bedroom during the night They adored the boys in the dorm! 

Diana would love to see more women get involved with Women of Vision. She says it has helped her "reclaim" Carson-Newman as a part of her life once again.
