The University of Alabama College of Communication and Information Sciences honors the memory of our beloved Board member and Fox 8 journalist Nancy Parker.
“The College and our Board of Visitors mourns the loss of Nancy and sends our prayers and condolences to her family, friends and colleagues,” said Mark Nelson, Dean of the College of Communication and Information Sciences. “Nancy used her time and talent to give back to our community through her service and unwavering support. She was passionate about mentoring rising journalists and teaching them how to tell meaningful stories. She became a close friend to all who worked with her as a member of our board.”
In 1988, Nancy graduated from the College of Communication and Information Sciences with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism. In 2015, she was honored with the College’s Bert Bank Distinguished Service Award and joined the College’s Board of Visitors in 2017. She frequently connected with students as a mentor sharing her experiences, advice and her fun-loving spirit.
“Nancy was a joy to have on our board and a remarkable professional,” said Nelson. “Our college is better because of her support and guidance. We will miss her deeply.”
