“Mr. Hill is an exceptional leader with the ability to motivate students to excel in any environment. He recognizes that every student learns differently and capitalizes on their talents despite being in an alternative setting,” said RCSD Superintendent Dr. Lynn Weathersby.
Under his leadership, The Learning Center was recognized by the Mississippi Department of Education as a “Model School” for Alternative Education.
He has been named RCSD’s Administrator of the Month in May 2007 and January 2011.
Mr. Hill is also a trainer for the Mississippi Department of Education for Functional Behavioral Assessments and he has been a guest speaker for the Council for Exceptional Children, Mississippi Association of Adult and Community Education and the Mississippi Dyslexia Association.
His goal as head of The Learning Center is to “create a learning environment where parents, students, teachers, administrators, and the community seek to ensure that quality instruction is provided for our students, even though they are enrolled in an alternative school program. It is our goal to not only assist students with behavioral interventions but also to offer academic interventions that support students’ ability to sustain the academic challenges they encounter when they exit the alternative program.”
He received his bachelor and masters degree from Delta State University. In 1992, he went to Mississippi College and earned a Master of Education in the School of Psychometry. In 2000, he became an assistant principal at Northwest Rankin High School and in 2004 he became the head principal at the Learning Center.
