John and Peggy Dever Changing Lives Fund

Fund for Student Success, Service, and Leadership

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of retired President John T. Dever. Please keep the Dever family in your thoughts and prayers. Read more about Dr. Dever's Lasting Legacy here. 

During my eight years as president of Thomas Nelson, I have seen the power of private giving as a way of helping students with the financial assistance, support services, and student life experiences needed for them to overcome barriers that often hinder their success and to fully realize their potential for personal and professional growth.

As I retire from the College, I am pledging $100,000 to establish a Fund for Student Success, Service, and Leadership, and I encourage other donors to join with me in supporting this effort. Administered through the Thomas Nelson Educational Foundation in conjunction with appropriate College offices, the fund is intended to support programs and projects that address the needs of special student populations and that promote service, leadership, and active engagement in campus and community life among the general student body.
