Clemens has a high percentage of military-connected students. To provide support to this unique population, Clemens has a Military Support Specialist (MSS) on campus. The role of the MSS is to ease transitions, promote wellness, provide support, and assist military-connected students and their families. The MSS for Clemens is Ms. Hidy.

Ms. Hidy was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, and has PCS’ed many times. Military culture is unique, and Ms. Hidy personally understands the impact of PCS, TDY, deployments, DEERS, TriCare, MIC3, Chapter 33, Chapter 35, and more acronyms. Ms. Hidy has the experience and many military family training courses to understand that each situation is unique. 

In addition to all the military certificates, Ms. Hidy has a Master’s of Education and a Bachelor’s of Business Administration. She has worked with students in different capacities for over 17 years. She strives to understand the challenges the military life creates and tries to find possible solutions.
