    Kristin Goodrich Hill, class of 2003, major in PSC, came from Robert E. Lee HS, Montgomery. She joined the Air Force national guard in 2002.  Using some of her military skills in presentation, she completed her capstone in Fall 2002.  She graduated in May, 2003, and was commissioned in the US Air Force as a Lieutenant. Her brother and sister followed her to HC.
    She writes:
    "I just got married so I have a new last name, but I am here at McChord AFM in Tacoma, Wa. The mountains are wonderful here, I actually live on the side of a mountain. Seattle is not to far so that is awesome. I am actually coming back to Montgomery on 28th August for ASBC, it is 2LT school, for five wks. Right now I am in an operations squadron, which is really cool because I get to be around a lot of flyers and get the feel of the high speed ops tempo and how it is directly affecting the Air Force. " [continued, right]

    At her sister's graduation in May 2008, Kristi was expecting her first child. 

    However, when I return I will probably be transferred to the personnel flight. I am planning on starting my masters degree during the spring term in either organizational leadership or human resources, prob. OL though. I plan on applying for the JAG program. If accepted in the program, the Air Force will pay for my law degree and pay me salary while I am attending law school." 
    In another email, "When I first got here I was an exec. officer in the 62 Operational Support Squadron for the Commander's Support Staff, Currently I am the Unit Deployment Manager for the 62 Mission Support Squadron."  In 1005, Lt. Hill entered the MBA program of Boston University.
