Following a Family Legacy

Cameron Byrne grew up in a family of Spring Hill College attendees and graduates and has known about the school since she was a child, having visited many times. She decided to continue the tradition and attend Spring Hill herself, earning two degrees, experience in campus groups and a full-time job.

Hailing from Houston, Mississippi, Byrne is the seventh generation of her family to attend Spring Hill. She said her father, Tom Byrne, graduated from Spring Hill, and the would always stop by the campus when passing through the area on family trips.


“Spring Hill challenges its students to apply all of its education into the world. It makes you more aware of the community where one lives now, lived previously or plans to live in the future. Contemplative of this interconnectedness and how each person affects one another taught me how to become someone who positively impacts both strangers and friends.”


“Hearing about his memories and love for the school helped me decide,” she said.

Byrne came to The Hill undecided on what to study, but she ultimately chose a double major of Financial Economics and Accounting.

“I am glad that Spring Hill’s curriculum allowed me to learn and have a broad perspective,” Byrne said. “Because of the experience and education I have received at Spring Hill, I can follow my passions and adapt to any career choice.”

While on The Hill, Byrne was a part of the Student Government Association and worked with the Jesuit Service Action Team. She is a member of Phi Mu fraternity and served on the Executive Panhellenic Council. She also spent a semester at the Spring Hill College Italy Center.

About this experience in Bologna, she said, “There are more similarities in the world than there are differences, and sometimes it takes leaving your comfort zone in order to understand someone else’s perspective.”

Byrne also participated in two Community Learning, Integrated, Mission-Based (CLIMB) courses: Business, Society and Sustainability and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. She said that both classes helped her learn how to give back to others – in an economic and professional sense. “These courses helped me understand how I can apply my education in service to others,” she said.

Outside of school, Byrne worked at Wilkins Miller, an accounting firm in Mobile, for two years. After graduation, she will be working at KPMG in the Washington D.C. area, starting her career as a tax associate. “This opportunity will be both challenging and exciting, and I hope to learn as much as I can,” she said.

As she prepares to walk across the graduation stage and complete a long-standing family tradition, Byrne had some final thoughts about her time on The Hill:

“Spring Hill challenges its students to apply all of its education into the world. It makes you more aware of the community where one lives now, lived previously or plans to live in the future. Contemplative of this interconnectedness and how each person affects one another taught me how to become someone who positively impacts both strangers and friends.”
