After 33 years of service to LSMSA, Dr. Elizabeth Hall is retiring.
A native of Washington state, Hall did her undergraduate work at the University of Idaho where she earned a bachelors degrees in applied music: vocal performance and in classical languages: Latin and Greek. She did her graduate studies in Latin, Greek, and Medieval Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she earned her Ph.D. in Classical and Medieval Latin. She was the founder and director of the Classical Scholars Program at LSMSA and has been with the school since the doors opened in 1983.
“Dr. Elizabeth Hall’s importance to the culture and community of LSMSA cannot be overstated.” said Dr. Kristi Key, director of academic services. “Who we are as an institution is intrinsically tied to the contributions of Dr. Hall over the course of the last 33 years. Her instruction in the Classics, her leadership among the faculty, and her support of our student’s efforts all reflect her dedication and her generosity.”
Dr. Hall will be honored at a retirement reception during the school year.
Plans are underway to find a Latin Instructor for the Fall.
