Mrs.Cox, I have read you're book and not being native to Tennessee or Athens I am glad we had educators like you're grandfather. Great work God Bless.

Not being a native of Athens, but still a lover of history, I have had a curiosity about Athens and her citizens. Dr. Nash was still alive when we moved here, and was often being honored for things. Working with the public here for over thirty years, I have become well acquainted with many members of the black community. It was very exciting to read about many of their earlier relatives, to put faces with names and especially put families together in my mind. You have done an excellent job presenting an earlier history and her citizens to those of us who were transplanted to Athens. I am looking forward to your next book.

What a wonderful book. I am so proud of you for writing this story for your Dad. I had Mr Nah visit my classroom on several different ocassion and had heard him tell many of these stories. In fact my class did an oral history of influential people from our community during the bicentennial. Mr.Nash and J. Will Foster spoke about both their schools. This oral history was recorded and the tapes donated to the museum in Athens. Debra, I am so proud of you and it is wonderful to have had a part of your education. This book should be read by every child in the McMinn County.

I could not put the book down. It was so interesting and certainly was a history lesson
to me. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Nash
on several occasions. He was truly a man of integrity and knowledge. I know God truly put him in our community to accomplish so much. Thank you Deborah for completing the work your father started so we could all gain knowledge and insight in the wonderful story of Mr. Nash. Suzanne Johnson

We moved from Etowah to Athens in 1956. I had heard of Prof. Nash. But never had the pleasure of meeting the gentleman. My wife and I both read the book and now feel we know Prof. Nash.
Eugene Scruggs did a great job and thanks to Deborah Scruggs Cox for following through with her fathers hard work. We all can find out what a great man he was. McMinn County can be proud to have a citizen like him as a citizen of our county.

Extraordinary people do extraordinary things and such was the case with Professor Nash. His life and accomplishments are well chronicled in "A Man Called Nash" and serve as a role model for future generations. The book is interspersed with national events that give context to the larger struggles of a man who would not accept defeat in striving to achieve his life passion. The opportunity to know and visit with Professor Nash, his lovely wife and companion, and his able assistant Zelma McClure are some of my fondest memories of life in Athens. Thank you for bringing this story to life. This book should be required reading.

I thoughly enjoyed the book. Professor Nash was truly a great man whose legacy will be felt in our community for a long time to come. McMinn County and the surrounding areas have a rich heritage and I wish accounts of other lives, who made our communities what they are today, could be memorialized as Professor Nash has been in this book.
