Nancy Tucker Post
Advancement & Communications
I'm Nancy Tucker Post. I'm a 1967 graduate of Trinity, with a major in sociology and a minor in Spanish. My years at Trinity were wonderful, and spending my junior year in Madrid made me appreciate the advantages of a small, personal educational environment. I received an M.A. in population studies at the University of Pennsylvania. Two years in the Peace Corps in Liberia enriched my understanding of that part of the world and the realities of what we then called the "Third World."
After the Peace Corps, I worked in the Population Policy section of the United Nations in New York, then moved to Burlington, Vermont. I had two children there, and lost my son Paul at the age of 12. My son Peter and his wife live in Vermont now and have a 16-month old son, Alexander. In Vermont, I worked for a health care research group which became what is now the Dartmouth Research Group in Health Care. I later worked for two different nonprofit groups for families of children with disabilities until I returned to Texas in 2000 to live with and care for my mother.
In Texas I earned a certificate in English for Speakers of Other Languages, and am now an adjunct instructor of ESOL to international students at Richland College, a branch of the Dallas Community College District. I have kept in close touch with several Trinity friends, and the association has been a joy.
Serving on the National Alumni Board has been such a rewarding opportunity to stay in touch with Trinity and its remarkable educational environment. My special interest on the board is to make students and alumni recognize the invaluable opportunities that ongoing involvement with the University through the Alumni Association offers for personal, professional and intellectual life.
