Two North Syracuse grads find place on Wall of Distinction

She became a school nurse originally because she thought the job would be a way to have more time off with her family during the summers. But the job turned into a passion.

"As I got into it I just really enjoy it," she said. "I love the kids. There's a lot of kids that have a lot of problems and I enjoy talking with them. I can be a nurse. I can be a teacher. I can be a counselor-in this one job."

Helping students grow and learn is a team effort, she said.

"I think it's the student's responsibility, and the parent's responsibility but also the community's responsibility to help all of our kids achieve just as much as they possibly can. Sometimes it's somebody taking a little time to care about them."

Hill is looking toward the future though, and hopes to retire sometime next year. She said she expects to keeps busy visiting family and working on her own projects, but she will miss the students at the high school the most.

"It's been a great job...great people to work with but the kids are awesome....that's what I will miss the most."
