John Hixon

John Hixon, a nursing major from Cleveland, Tennessee, is involved with Tau Kappa Omega and the National Student Nurses’ Association. He also volunteers as an assistant Track and Field coach at Ocoee Middle School. “One of the things I’ve loved best about Lee is growing as a person and as a soon-to-be nurse with my friends.” After graduation, he plans to stay close to home, work in an intensive care unit for a couple years, and then go on to graduate school to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist.
