Jacquelyn “Jackie” Hill (1932–2014) was well known for her kindness and warm spirit, welcoming and accepting everyone she met. Graduating from the University of Georgia in 1954 with a degree in English, Jackie eventually received her teacher certification in elementary education and library science from Georgia State University. Her early career took her to Clayton County (GA) Public Schools, Richmond (VA) Public Schools, and even the Chesterfield County (VA) Library. After receiving her M.Ed. in Education/Instructional Media from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1979, Jackie became the Director of the Learning Resources Center and an Assistant Professor of Educational Media at Paine College. After more than 10 years at Paine, Jackie retired from academics in 1991 but began a new career in industry, transitioning into instructional development for companies such as U.S. Steel, Cleveland Building Trades, and American Greetings. Of course, her heart never left education, and Mrs. Hill eventually returned, finishing out her professional career as the media specialist at Evans High School in Augusta, Georgia. Throughout all of these positions, Jackie maintained a dedication to service and leadership.
