Mr. Hinz spoke with our degree students about his career, the process of publishing his book, and the importance of critical success skills such as written and oral communication.

In his guest lecture to Digital Graphic Art and Criminal Justice students, Mr. Hinz noted that “A command of the English language, both verbal and written, is a must in any career path you follow. You must be able to communicate what you mean in a logical and understandable way.”

Mr. Hinz graduated from Texas Christian University with a degree in Criminal Justice. His career with the Fort Worth Police spanned more than 35 years and included roles as police dispatcher, patrol officer, tactical (SWAT) team member, detective, sergeant, and member of the Internal Affairs Division.

Mr. Hinz helped start the first Officer Survival Training School in 1982, instructed several courses in the Recruit Academy, and in 2005 helped start the Fort Worth Police Historical Association.

During his five years at our Fort Worth Campus, Mr. Hinz has assisted Criminal Justice graduates in his role in Career Services and is now a key part of our Campus Security team.

Anthony Ordille
An Injection of Faith, written by Fort Worth Facilities Manager Anthony Ordille, examines a teenage boy’s struggles with substance abuse and hard living in his early adult years and charts his path to acceptance that God has a higher calling.

Mr. Ordille is a six-year veteran of our Fort Worth Campus. In his guest lecture, he shared with students the steps required to successfully publish a book and prepare for book sales and signings. He also emphasized the importance of education and of mastering English language and usage.

Mr. Ordille noted, “It was a great honor to share my experience with our degree students. I also enjoyed sharing my insights on the importance of English language skills, because employers often require their employees to produce several forms of written documentation. In today’s marketplace especially, our graduates need to understand how critical it is to communicate well using electronic devices.”(1)

Mr. Ordille was foreman of a blueberry farm after graduating high school and later had a 15-year entrepreneurial career as a master plumber and business owner. He has an associate’s degree in Christian Studies and a bachelor’s degree in Church Ministry. Mr. Ordille is also a licensed minister.

“We congratulate Mr. Ordille and Mr. Hinz on the publication of their books, and we appreciate the valuable insights they shared with our degree students,” said Fort Worth Campus President Gregg Falcon.
