Wil (short for 'Wilson') grew up in Tupelo, MS and attended the University of Mississippi, where he majored in English and was actively involved in RUF as a student. After college, Wil interned with RUF at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He also met his wife Mary Jett, who attended UNC and was an RUF intern at the College of William and Mary. After getting married in 2012, the Nettletons stuck around North Carolina for a couple of years before moving to Jackson, MS in 2014 for Wil to start seminary. Wil graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson with an M.Div in May, 2017, and the Nettletons moved to San Antonio in June, 2017 for Wil to start serving as the RUF Campus Minister at Trinity University. Long story short--they love RUF.
The Nettletons also love a good Netflix binge, playing with their dog, Charlie (they are the crazy dog people the Internet is constantly warning you about), Ole Miss football, Carolina basketball, and grilling out with friends. If you are a Trinity student, they would love to buy you lunch or coffee and get to know you better!
Mary Catherine (MC) is from Houston, TX and recently graduated from Baylor University. After transferring from Covenant College her freshman year, she changed her major 7 times before settling on English Literature. MC deeply loves reading, her friends/ family, dogs, and making ice cream tacos. She has tried to find her way into Narnia several times, but to no avail. Please contact her if you have any suggestions. Having struggled with doubt in high school, she is floored for the opportunity to invest in relationships with students who may be struggling with similar questions. Mary Catherine was greatly impacted by her relationships with RUF interns throughout college and is floored to serve other college students in the same way.
