Welcome to the MLT Network, Dr. Myldred P. Hill, Founder and Administrator of Hill-Marshall Academy, Inc., located in the great state of Georgia. Visit their web site and listen in as the MLT Network talks to Dr. Hill http://www.hill-marshallacademyinc.com/index.html Our Beginning: The Vision Two young men who volunteered to serve in the United States Army during the early 40"s - an era when very few young Black males knew how to read and write in a proficient manner - decided to teach young enlisted men to read and write. The desire to bring greater light into the lives of men who were unable to communicate effectively with loved ones, family and friends through letter writing exchange, birthed the VISION for what has now become the Hill-Marshall Academy, Inc. These young men respectively, from Blackshear and Brunswick, Georgia, Leo Marshall and W. Ray Hill, whose paths had intersected, expressed a strong desire to become change agents. After serving their prescribed time in the military, and going their separate ways to begin careers as civilians, they remained friends and kept in touch; however, were unable to continue their literacy program. They both became successful in their chosen careers. Mr. Marshall, after a long and successful tenure in public school education, mortuary science, county government, and civic affairs, fell victim to a very tragic automobile accident and passed away in 2006. Dr. Hill established a long and varied career in the areas of criminal investigations, college and university administration, mortuary science, and as an Itinerant Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church for more than thirty years, retiring in 2003. The Hill-Marshall Academy, Inc.,was incorporated December 2006 with Dr. Paula Marshall Lockhart as President. The Hill-Marshall Academy University Preparatory Enrichment Program (UPEP) was founded in October 2007 by Dr. Myldred P. Hill, spouse of Dr. W. Ray Hill.
