Nexus is a noun that means a connection or link between two things.
Our word of the day comes directly from Latin. Its pronunciation has changed over the years from NECK soos to NECK sis, but its meaning is the same. It refers to something that links two things, for example: My old high school was a helpful nexus to many close friends. Without old St. Augustine High, I would have never been connected with great people like Nick, Erin and Smitty.
