Nancy Cason, Assistant to the Rector for Justice Ministries, grew up in Jackson, Mississippi, a hot-spot of the Civil Rights Movement during the turbulent 1960s. Her early awakening to the realities of racial inequality has led to deeply held theological understandings that support a Christian vision of social justice.
An active participant in the St. B’s community since 1993, Nancy has enjoyed working alongside others on the Vestry, Discernment and Rector Search Committees, and in ECW leadership. She currently serves as a Lay Eucharistic Minister and on the Facilities Committee.
Before retirement, Nancy taught art history and art education at Belmont University and MTSU, and held positions as Docent Educator and Associate Curator at the Frist Art Museum. She and Don are blessed with adult children, Holly (Simon), Parker (Eva) and Patrick (Bia), as well as grandchildren Kate, Sam, and Jake.
