An MTSU alumna who is working with the U.S. Department of POW/MIA Accounting Agency in Hawaii was the guest on a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Bethany Hall, who works for the Consolidated Utility District of Rutherford County, first aired Aug. 24 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and www.wmot.org.

The CUD granted Hall leave from May 2021 to January 2022 to help locate the remains of American armed forces personnel who perished in the line of duty.
She is using the expertise in mapping and data collection that she employs as geographic information systems coordinator with CUD to scour 20th-century battlefields in Asia and the Pacific.
“A lot of it entails looking through old aerial imagery, historic records, working with an archaeologist and tying all this together with the geographers there to kind of put it into a mapping software,” said Hall, who earned her master’s degree in liberal arts from MTSU.
Hall is a drone pilot with a Federal Aviation Administration certification, a skill that also could come in handy in her work at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Oahu.
