After a months-long national search, the Hill College Board of Regents approved the college’s 11th president at their meeting last week. Dr. Thomas Mills will serve as Hill College President beginning August 1, 2022.

Dr. Mills brings a wealth of community college experience to the position having spent almost thirty years in Texas and Oklahoma colleges. He has served as a faculty member, coach, director of athletics, dean, and vice president of academic affairs.

“I am profoundly thankful for the confidence the Board of Regents has shown in me by selecting me from the talented field of candidates. I am more excited than I can put into words about the opportunity to be president of Hill College,” says Dr. Thomas Mills.

Dr. Mills began his education career at Rose State College where he received an associate of arts degree, followed by a bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Central Oklahoma. His doctoral degree is from the University of Houston, a Ph.D. in Biochemistry.

“Yvonne and I look forward to our move to Hill County, investing in the community, and doing the work of leading the college into its promising future,” Mills said. “Thanks again to the campuses, communities, and the Board of Regents for the extraordinary hospitality and kind-heartedness we experienced during our visit.”
