Lyndon Hall was recently named Dean of Vance-Granville Community College’s Warren County Campus. In his new leadership role, Hall is responsible for supervising all operations at the satellite campus in Warrenton, including both the curriculum and continuing education courses offered there.
A Durham resident, Hall has been a member of the college’s staff since 2009. In fact, his new posting marks a return to the location where his VGCC career began, as the Warren Campus Coordinator and college liaison for Warren Early College High School. From 2010 through 2015, Hall served as director of Joint High School Programs for VGCC. In that capacity, he supervised all VGCC programs offered to high school students in four counties through Early College partnerships with local school systems as well as Career and College Promise (CCP) pathways. Hall also advised individual students and served as an adjunct instructor at times.
“This is truly an exciting time at Vance-Granville Community College, and I am thrilled about the opportunity to lead an outstanding group of individuals at the Warren Campus as we serve our community,” Hall said. He noted that he had been in positions of service for practically his entire working life, “serving first our country as a member of our armed forces and now our Warren County community as a member of the team at Vance-Granville.”
Hall served for over 21 years in the United States Air Force, including stints at the Air Force Personnel Center at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas and at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, where he was Director of Personnel for the 33rd Fighter Wing. He moved to North Carolina to become an Air Force Junior ROTC instructor at Northern Durham High School.
Hall holds an associate degree from Texas Lutheran College, associate and bachelor’s degrees in Human Services from Wayland Baptist University, and a master’s degree in Higher Education Administration from the same university. Hall is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Higher Education Administration through Northeastern University.
“Every student who comes to us has a dream,” Hall said. “It is my desire to meet them where they are and support them in their efforts to design a plan that helps them discover all of the possibilities that await them.”
VGCC’s Warren Campus is home to Warren Early College High School and also offers Adult Basic Skills classes, Occupational Healthcare programs, Small Business Center seminars, Heavy Equipment Operator, Horsemanship, and curriculum courses in subjects that include Cosmetology and Office Administration.
“I am excited to have Mr. Hall serving in this capacity,” said Dr. Angela Ballentine, VGCC’s vice president of academic and student affairs. “He continues to positively contribute to the Academic & Student Affairs team, as he leads our efforts to educate, inspire and support students in the Warren County area.”
