Nebraska Life magazine features Union student

Jonathan Hilliard

LINCOLNJonathan Hilliard, a senior at Union College, was selected by Nebraska Life magazine to be featured in its annual “Guide to Nebraska Colleges & Universities. ”Hilliard is one of 10 Nebraska collegians to be featured with a short biography and photo.
        Hilliard is a business major and National Merit Scholar from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He has already started his own business selling used cell phones on eBay. With this new entrepreneurial venture, he anticipates the need to hire an associate in the near future.
        Hilliard is a member of Union Scholars and his senior project involves researching small businesses in a local neighborhood. He is a student member of Union’s Integrated Marketing Team and the Division of Business’s Best in Class Advisory Board. He has also served as a student body senator and as editor of the business program’s alumni newsletter.
The college guide appears in the January/February 2005 issue. Nebraska Life magazine focuses of Nebraska’s people, places, history and culture.
        “Telling stories about Nebraska and Nebraskans is what we do as a magazine,” said Managing Editor David Bristow. “So for us, the best way to talk about colleges was to tell the stories of some of our outstanding students.”
