Jack and Nancy Fox Create Music and Golf Scholarships
Jack and Nancy Fox have established two scholarships for CSU, Chico students. Jack was the director of Alumni and Parent Relations until August 2000, and Nancy (formerly Mc - Dougal) is on the University Advisory Board. Both scholarships have been set up as flexible endowments, with one for future teachers and the other to be used to attract and retain outstanding golf athletes.
Nancy is a 1964 alumna who majored in education. She taught elementary school for seven years and then stayed involved in education while she raised her own children. After Nancy's children finished school, she became a fundraiser for children's causes. Because of her long-time involvement with CSU, Chico and her love of children, Nancy wanted to help students become teachers through scholarships.
It was a perfect match when Sarah Fry, director of Development for the College of Communication and Education, told Nancy and Jack about a relatively new program at CSU, Chico. The Integrated Teacher Core Program is a blended program that entering freshmen can select to obtain a B.A. in Liberal Studies and a Multiple Subject Credential in four years of full - time college work. Students work in schools with teachers and students each semester of the program.
Jack graduated from Ball State University with a double major in mathematics and physical education. He then obtained a masters in education from UC Santa Barbara, where he taught and coached the golf team. Jack went into university administration at UCSB, and then became the alumni director at the University of Houston. After leaving Houston, he started his own business and later returned to higher education. Jack served as the director of Alumni and Parent Relations at CSU, Chico for over two years, leaving in August 2000 to marry Nancy.
Jack knows that because Chico is a small school, it can be difficult to compete with golf teams from larger schools. He hopes the university will be able to attract and retain a couple of golf stars to help Chico dominate the league.
The Jack and Nancy Fox Golf Scholarship and the Nancy and Jack Fox Future Teacher Scholarship will each award $1,000 annually to a deserving student. We are very grateful for their commitment to excellence.
