YTI welcomed Rebecca Hamilton in January as Finance & Personnel Manager. Rebecca is married to YTI Provost, Dr. Scott Hamilton, who joined the staff in July 2017. Rebecca has a wide variety of experience in the areas of administration, finance, and personnel management, starting with being raised in her family’s supermarket business of 35 years. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Midwestern State University in 1992, shortly after marrying Scott, and for the next 25 years, ministry and educational opportunities took them to a variety of locations in Texas and West Virginia. Through those years, Rebecca worked in the areas of travel, municipal government, market research, and public school finance, along with other areas as an administrative assistant.
She is a gifted vocalist, having performed in numerous musicals and operas over the years and directed multiple church choirs. She is an equally-accomplished pianist, and has worked extensively as an accompanist and vocal coach for many high school and university vocal and instrumental students. This is her true love (aside, of course, from Scott!)
Rebecca and Scott are the proud parents of two grown daughters, Ally and Nicole. Ally earned her Bachelor’s degree from Howard Payne University in 2011, and is currently expecting their first grandbaby. Nicole earned her Bachelor’s degree from Howard Payne University in 2017, and is currently teaching fifth grade in Marble Falls, Texas. Both Rebecca and Scott were born and raised in Texas, but are thoroughly enjoying their (very) new home in Montana.
