BOONE— Ralph Hall, a professor of leadership and educational studies at Appalachian State University, received the North Carolina Adult Education Association Service Award.

The award was presented at the 2005 NCAEA Annual Conference held in New Bern. It recognizes distinguished service by an adult education practitioner. Hall began teaching at Appalachian in 1974 and served as chair of the Department of Administration, Supervision and Higher Education, now the Department of Leadership and Educational Studies, from 1978-1985.

Hall teaches courses in public school law, higher education law, leadership theory and sport law. During his 30-year career at Appalachian, he has frequently traveled to off-campus sites to teach adult students.

NCAEA membership includes adult educators and administrators from two-year and four-year colleges and universities, community colleges, Area Health Education Centers, the N.C. Agricultural Extension Service, and other organizations with adult educators, private practitioners, and adult education students.

The NCAEA annual awards honor professionals and programs that make significant contributions to the field of adult education and to adult students.
