Hill appointed to vacant MCC trustee position

Feb. 14, 2023

McLennan Community College (MCC) board of trustees has appointed Jonathan Hill as their next board member, filling the District 1 position that was vacated when board member Doug McDurham moved out of the district.

Hill is senior brand strategy specialist and was previously associate director of athletics communications at Baylor University. He graduated from MCC in 2013 with an associate of arts in general academics and from Tarleton State University-Waco on the MCC campus in 2014 with a bachelor of business administration in marketing. He continued his education and graduated in 2018 with a master of science in educational leadership from Baylor University.

Hill has served on a variety of local and statewide boards including the City of Waco Transit Advisory board, Bosqueville Excellence in Education Foundation board, the City of Waco Animal Welfare Advisory board, Baylor Sport Management Association, and the Texas Junior College Student Government Association.

“As an alum of both MCC and the University Center, I am thrilled for this opportunity to serve the College’s faculty, staff, students and the community as a trustee. MCC never shut the door on me and offered me patience and grace as a student when I needed it the most. I hope to give back even a fraction of the gift that the College has been to me and my family,” said Hill.

District 1 includes precincts 1, 9, 10, 12, 14, 17, 38, 39, 41 (partial), 42, 45, 46, 47, 48, 54 (partial), 88 and 89. It encompasses the area around the college campus on 19th Street and College Drive, as well as parts of north and east Waco. Hill will take the oath of office as a newly appointed board member at 6 p.m. Feb. 28 during the regular board meeting at the Northwood House at McLennan Community College.

Hill is married to Erin, a licensed social worker at Baylor University. They have a one son, Jameson, and live in the Cedar Ridge neighborhood in Waco.
