PEER Committee Financial Analyst, Broadmoor Treasurer Join Mississippi College Faculty
Mississippi College executive leaders are proud to welcome two valuable additions to the Christian University’s faculty and administrative staff.
Jordan Dillon, M.B.A.
Jordan Dillon, a Mississippi College graduate and a financial analyst for the Mississippi Joint Legislative PEER Committee, has joined the MC faculty as an instructor in the School of Business.
Dillon’s relationship with the University began when she enrolled at MC in 2016. During her four years of undergraduate work, she played defender on the women’s soccer team, was named to the Gulf South Conference Academic Honor Roll, and earned several academic laurels, including the MC Dean’s Academic Scholarship and MC Who’s Who for 2020-21. Co-chair of the MC Accounting Society Beta Alphi Psi, she earned her B.S. in accounting before jumping straight into graduate work. A member of the Beta Gamma Sigma honorary and the MC Graduate Accounting Student of the Year, Dillon received her M.B.A. in accounting in 2021.
Dr. Marcelo Eduardo, The Anderson Distinguished Professor of Finance and dean of the School of Business, said he is excited to have Dillon join the MC Business faculty.
“She will be one of our youngest faculty members ever, and that shows you how highly we think of her potential as a teacher,” Eduardo said. “Jordan’s immediate ability to relate to our students and her natural teaching gifts are ideally suited to the Business Skills for Life class, which is mostly a freshman class and will constitute the main part of her teaching schedule.”
While young, Dillon does bring plenty of experience to her role. As financial analyst for the Performance Evaluation and Expenditure Review Committee, she assisted in the analysis of financial sustainability and soundness of the Public Employees’ Retirement System pension plan and conducted a statutorily required annual review of the Mississippi Development Authority Tourism Advertising Fund, among other legislative support services.
“I’m excited to return to MC in this new and exciting role,” Dillon said. “It’s my belief that my history as an MC student will be instrumental in my growth as an instructor.”
Steven D. Mulhollen, M.B.A.
Steven D. Mulhollen, a Mississippi College alum who recently served as treasurer and executive pastor of business administration for Broadmoor Baptist Church in Madison, has joined the MC faculty as an instructor in the School of Business.
While obtaining his B.A. in Christian studies, his M.B.A., and his Certificate in Accounting from MC, Mulhollen embarked on a diverse career. He began in the Investor Relations Mailroom at WorldCom and worked his way up as a financial analyst while completing his M.B.A. After a short stint at Georgia Pacific as a wood and fiber procurement accountant, he entered public accounting to pursue his passion for serving not-for-profit organizations.
After a successful tenure at HORNE, Mulhollen left to serve his clients, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Phi Theta Kappa Foundation, as the chief financial officer. While serving as chair of the finance committee, his home church, Broadmoor Baptist Church, asked him to serve as the executive pastor and treasurer, which he did for the last five years. Mulhollen was first introduced to teaching adjunct at the collegiate level in the early 2000s at MC, and the desire and joy of teaching have never left him.
Dr. Marcelo Eduardo, The Anderson Distinguished Professor of Finance and dean of the School of Business, said he is delighted to have someone with Mulhollen’s experience on the MC Business faculty.
“We know that he will bring his experience to the classroom, along with a heart to teach and impact our students,” Eduardo said. “Steve will be finishing his Ph.D. soon, and having a faculty member with his background, both academically and professionally, will bring great value to our program.”
He said Mulhollen will teach intermediate accounting and cost accounting in MC Business.
Mulhollen’s ties to MC run deep: he met his wife, Emily Reid, during their freshman year at Mississippi College. She earned her undergraduate and master’s degrees at MC and taught in the School of Education. She currently serves as principal of Mannsdale Lower Elementary School in Madison. The Mulhollens have two children: son Parker, 16, and daughter Mallory, 13.
