Hilary Wilson, Activities Director
Hilary Wilson grew up in Sebago, Maine and graduated from Lake Region High School in 2001. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from the University of New Hampshire in 2005 after studying abroad for a semester in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. After graduating from UNH she moved from Maine to Chico, CA to attend their teaching credential program from which she graduated in 2008. Hilary was first hired at Mt. Shasta High School the following school year, a position she found and applied for via internet cafes during a month long backpacking trip around South America. Hilary had the pleasure of working with Mr. Abbott for that school year and in 2009 she moved to Pennsylvania for a year and, upon her return to California, was a substitute teacher in the Redding area until thankfully the Spanish teacher position became available at MSHS in 2013.

Hilary has been fortunate enough to have traveled all over Central America, South America and Europe and someday hopes to travel with her students. She is also a professional seamstress and the costume designer and theater lab teacher for Shasta College in Redding. Hilary is thrilled to be back in Mt. Shasta and to be working full time at MSHS. She is honored and excited to be taking on the Activities Director position.
