School Engagement: Our lead for school engagement is the 75th Mission Support Group Commander, Col Khalim Taha. Initiatives in this focus area partner with local elementary, junior high, and high schools to connect base-affiliated children with resources, bring Air Force representation into the schools, and foster the connection between Hill AFB military/civilian Airmen and our neighborhood communities. Initiatives also include targeted support to families facing challenges in our schools. Both Col Taha and I, Matt Mason,  are here as a resource. If you are experiencing any issues with your child’s school please reach out to me.
