Miss Hixson's birthday is tomorrow, February 8th!

"Christina Hixson understands how important it is for you to earn a college degree. But she also knows that you face a variety of challenges and may not have the kind of encouragement and support that puts you on a college-bound track. That's why she chose to create the Hixson Opportunity Awards at Iowa State University.

A native of Clarinda, Iowa, Christina Hixson serves as sole trustee of the Lied Foundation Trust. Through her financial leadership, she has been recognized as an outstanding philanthropist, known especially for the generous financial support she has directed to charitable institutions in the Midwest and southern Nevada."
