Retired Employee Proud of Her Association With DBU
When Maxine Crouch Day says that she just loves Dallas Baptist University, there can be no doubting her sincerity.
Maxine has worked for the University and "she speaks out for DBU every chance she gets." She also had a daughter graduate from DBU, and she supports the University as one of its most faithful donors.
But that's still not enough for Maxine; she wants to do even more for DBU. That is why she is remembering the University in her will with a percentage of her estate.
"My love for DBU started in 1965," Maxine says, "when the University first came to Dallas. It has influenced my life. I am so proud of my association with DBU. I wholeheartedly agree with its principles."
Maxine grew up in the church, and it was through the church she was attending in the mid-1960s that she became acquainted with Dallas Baptist University. In 1975, she took a job with DBU, and five years later Maxine became the executive assistant to new University President Dr. W. Marvin Watson.
"It was from Dr. Watson that I learned that if employees and alumni don't support the University, then why should anyone else?" It is a message Maxine took to heart—though she was no stranger to the value and importance of charitable giving.
Maxine, who retired from DBU in 1991, has been widowed twice. She was first married
to Johnnie Crouch and then to Dr. Clayton Day. Both husbands, she says, were "great Christian men and very, very generous. They believed in giving."
The same can be said of Maxine. "I count service to DBU as service to the Lord," she says." I do support DBU as much as I can financially."
And she says of her fellow Baptists in the Dallas area: "It is their university, and they should support it too."
