The Port of Baltimore is an integral part of Bud Nixon’s life. Since 1921 his family has owned the Rukert Terminal, which is now on 130 acres of waterfront in the Baltimore Harbor. It receives, warehouses, and ships primary goods such as fertilizer, salt for icy roads, and large shipments of a variety of goods. The company employs 200 workers. Bud has been President of the company and retired in 2004. His son, Andy George Nixon, is now Vice President.
Pam Nixon grew up in the Wiltondale area of Baltimore County and attended Stoneleigh Elementary School. For junior high, she attended Friends School of Baltimore, and for high school, Penn Hall Boarding School in Chambersburg, PA. At Centenary University in Hackettstown, NJ, she earned a degree as a medical secretary, leading to a position, for three years, at Sheppard Pratt Hospital.
