eoff Hill may be new to the Aircraft Electronics Association, but he is an old-hand when it comes to the city of Lee’s Summit, home to the AEA’s international headquarters. In fact, he’s a native and graduate of Lee’s Summit High School, a city close to 100,000 in population. As a boy, Hill played baseball, all day, every day. He most often was a pitcher and played third base, from the time he was 6 years old through high school. Interestingly, at the time he graduated from high school, Lee’s Summit was the largest high school in Missouri with more than 600 students in the graduating class. After high school, Hill attended the University of Missouri and earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Then, he went straight from Mizzou to Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, to earn a master’s degree in sports administration. His first professional job was with the Kansas City Royals in Director of the public relations department, dealing with media relations, producing the team’s media guide and other publications and Communications arranging for interviews of players, coaches and management. After serving two years with the Royals, he then became the sports information director and director of marketing and promotions for the University of Missouri-Kansas City, an NCAA Division I program, where he spent nine years. Then, Hill decided to make a major career change. “The biggest reason I left sports is the need to continually re-locate to advance in the profession,” Hill said. “Many of the sports jobs available in Kansas City departed for other locations. The NCAA, NAIA, Big Eight and Kansas City Kings moved to other cities, and so did the jobs. My family and roots are in Kansas City, and the opportunities were going away. Besides, I felt I had fulfilled my dream.” Hill left the sports industry to help open a new business, a family entertainment center called Paradise Park in Lee’s Summit. He served the company for seven years
