Carson Hill, '12
Carson Hill, ’12, entered Muskingum University planning to study Education. However, he switched his major to Political Science – a degree now serving him well.
Hill works for Mission Essential Personnel as a Retention Specialist. His company deploys Pashto and Dari linguists overseas for the U.S. military. Although he works in the Columbus, Ohio corporate office, Hill spends some of his time overseas; he is currently traveling from base to base in Afghanistan.
Hill credits Muskingum with preparing him “to communicate in different ways when dealing with different people and situations.” He feels that what he learned at Muskingum prepared him for success in the workplace.
Hill credits MU soccer coach Seamus Reilly as one of his “main influencers” on campus. “He has always believed in me and told me that with my work ethic I will achieve whatever it is I want to do in life. He treats his soccer team like they are his sons and looks at them as men. He knows soccer is just a game and there is more to life than a game, which he also has prepared us for the working world and the real world extremely well. I couldn’t thank him enough.”
