Nov. 22, 2016

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Two Rebels – Mike Hilton and Alex Schneider – will participate in the first SEC Corporate Career Tour to be held Nov. 29-Dec. 1, the league office announced Tuesday.

The event, hosted in Atlanta, will be held in conjunction with the 2016 SEC Fall Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) meeting.

The group is scheduled to visit the headquarters and meet with executives and talent acquisition staff at several corporations in the Atlanta area including Chick-fil-A, Boys & Girls Club of America, CNN/Turner Broadcasting System and Jackson Spalding. Also included on the agenda is a presentation from Serviam Partners President Randy Hain, Growing Leaders, and former SEC student-athletes Ben Troupe and Josh Foliart on leadership and life after sports.

The Fall Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) meeting will include a unique first time experience for meeting participants. The meeting will focus on providing a corporate career tour as a part of the SEC Career Academy. Job opportunities and advice will be introduced to student-athletes seeking career options and exposure.

Hilton and Schneider are among 26 current and former SEC student-athletes participating in the event.

Hilton was a four-year letterman for the Rebels, starting at every position in the secondary during his collegiate career. Last year’s Chucky Mullins Courage Award winner, Hilton finished his Ole Miss career with 226 tackles, 25.5 TFLs, 32 passes defended and six interceptions.

Schneider is entering her junior season on the diamond, and has played more than 105 games in her two-year career thus far. She is an Ole Miss SAAC Executive Officer, and SAAC representative at the conference level.
