Isaac Dixon is the new IT support specialist intern at Southeastern Conference (SEC) headquarters. He is an honor graduate of the class of 2018 at Oakwood University, with a bachelor of science degree in computer networks.
Dixon’s position represents a strategic effort of the Southern Union and the North American Division to identify talented young leaders, and enlist their services to establish long term commitment of serving the Church in a professional capacity. The program allows for a two-year subsidy from the Union and Division levels, with the expectation that the local conference will then assume full financial responsibility. The internship should result in full time employment with the local conference.
The son of a pastor (who doubled as a chaplain), Dixon has lived all over the United States, including Hawaii. Fluent in several computer programming languages, he is passionate about computer programming and has hopes of one day creating his very own video game. In his spare time, he enjoys playing the classical guitar as well as the piano. He is also an avid gamer and Nintendo enthusiast.
SEC office staff were shocked on August 15, 2018, when they received a call from Orlando Regional Medical Center that Dixon had been airlifted to the trauma center after a collision with a bus on his way to the office that morning. SEC staff, along with family and friends from around the country, prayed earnestly for his recovery. After seven days in ICU, several surgical procedures, and a one-month hospital stay, Dixon was discharged September 15, 2018. While the recovery process continues, Dixon looks forward to getting back to work as soon as possible.
