Up to now, Margaret Hill can be heard frequently referred to as "Miss Margaret" and occasionally with titles of royalty like, "Lady Margaret", or "Queen Mother" which reflects the high esteem and warm appreciation widely felt for her throughout the Inland Empire. On May 26, 2011, following a Commencement Ceremony at the University of Redlands, Hill's official title is now Honorary Doctorate, Margaret Hill, Educational Social Justice.
Participating as a member of the Presidential Party, Hill marched in the academic procession, sat in the front row on the platform between Honorable Mayor Patrick Morris, J.D., of San Bernardino and other members of the University of Redlands Board of Trustees along with James R. Appleton, Ph.D., President, University of Redlands who all watched as Hill spoke briefly and modestly after receiving her new title.
Receiving the honorary doctorate caps her 40+ years of educational and community service which includes classroom teaching at San Bernardino High School; 16 years as Principal at San Andreas H.S.; college teaching at California State University, San Bernardino and University of Redlands; as well as her responsibilities as Assistant Superintendent of Administrative Services in the Office of the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools.
