Space operations officer, NASA Intern

(B.A. in History ’10)
Hitt is getting to do a job that is a dream for many children—working for NASA. He is currently working toward his MBA and interning at NASA for the Pathways program at Johnson Space Center in Houston.

As a space operations officer for the U.S. Army Reserve, Hitt utilizes experiences working in the Army ROTC and as a field artillery officer as he works to serve and protect this nation. As a 2010 graduate of MBU, Hitt attributes Dr. Andy Chambers, Dr. Keith Buetler and Dr. Terry Christophe for much of his success.

“Each of these men helped shape me into the man I have become today,” Hitt said. “They, along with my family, have given me the education and desire to go forth, do great things and glorify the Lord.”

Whether it’s improving processes or encouraging productivity, Hitt said MBU equipped him to have a successful future.

“Much of my experiences are in government and having had courses related to such provided a lot of understanding into how things operate in today’s society. MBU’s diverse student body helped prepare me for the people and cultures I have encountered in the military and at NASA.”

A story of shining on.
