Why I Love Hope
Hope has felt like home to Hillary since her first time on campus as a prospective high school student. Many of the professional positions Hillary has held were made possible through an alumni or faculty connection and she values greatly the impact those relationships had on her career. Now as a Hope staff member, she is grateful to be part of Hope’s mission and welcoming community in a professional capacity.
