Carol Nixon

Carol Nixon was named March Member of the Month by the Women In Trucking Association. Carol is a WIT Image Team member and professional driver for Walmart Private Fleet.

Carol and a fellow Walmart driver, Deb Pollard both had an opportunity to attend the first annual WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo in 2015. It was at that conference that Carol learned Deb’s husband, Craig, was on dialysis and in need of a kidney. Carol immediately knew she wanted to help. They underwent a series of tests lasting eight hours to find out if they were a match. Carol decided to donate her kidney to someone else if she wasn’t a match for Craig. In November 2016, they underwent the surgery with no complications. Both Carol and Craig are doing well.

These selfless acts are seen among truck drivers across the country. We hear numerous stories of Highway Heroes that conduct altruistic acts to help others. If you are interested in being an organ donor, visit: organdonor.gov.
