Heath Hooper

BS Business Admin. - Human Resources Mgmt., Class of 2016

"Completing my degree will allow me to move up in my current career position."

After 20 years of being in college I am finishing my BS in Human Resource Management. I currently live in Weare, N.H., with my wife and two sons. My wife and I have been foster parents for the last 10 years, and have fostered over 15 kids in our home. I currently serve as the director of human resources at Easter Seals NH, and work part-time as a martial arts instructor. Returning to college is something I always wanted to do, but just never found a quality and convenient program that I liked. As you can see, I live and work a busy schedule, so having the flexibility to complete my classes online is a plus.

I started in January, and so far all of the online instructors have been great and supportive in my efforts to further my education. They have also been very understanding and flexible when life has thrown me some curveballs. Completing my degree will allow me to move up in my current career position, and sets the future for anything else that may come my way.
