She was secretary of the Board of Trustees, is a member of the Executive Committee of the board, established the Nancy K. Stevens Scholarship at the college and is a recipient of the Wall of

She is a member of LaGrange First United Methodist Church where she serves on the board of trustees, is a member of the altar guild and was chair of the staff/pastor-parish relations committee. She is retired executive director of the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra, as well as a member of its board and guild. Her
other activities include LaGrange Junior Service League, the LaGrange Art Museum, Troup County Historical Society and the Spectator Book Club.
