Jerry Hampton, Hill College automotive technology program coordinator and instructor, has received his doctor of education in educational leadership degree from Tarleton State University. 

Hampton has a bachelor’s degree in vocational teaching from Western New Mexico University with a minor in automobile mechanics and a master's degree in education from Tarleton State University.

He began his career at Hill College in 2009 and helped vet all the tools and equipment for the Snap-On facility and updated the curriculum and scheduling to comply with the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation certification in association with NC3 and Snap-On. 

Hill College President Dr. Pam Boehm said, “We are so proud of Dr. Hampton, he is a great example of the credentialed faculty we have at Hill College.”

“My job is fun because I still get to play with cars,” said Hampton. “My favorite part of my job is watching a student finally ‘get it.’ I also enjoy that the program takes in outside work from faculty, staff, other students, and residents, which means we are also helping others with the skills we are teaching.”
