Ed Hall Retires as Vice President for Institutional Advancement
Here is an excerpt from the VTS Press Release (click here) on Ed's retirement: Virginia Theological Seminary celebrated the distinguished service of Edwin King Hall [Thursday] night at a gala dinner that included the Seminary faculty and staff members, and Hall’s family and friends. Hall, who currently serves as Vice President for Institutional Advancement, will retire from his position on September 30, 2008. Hall’s tenure with the Seminary began in November of 1995 when he served as a member of the Seminary’s Board of Trustees and Finance Committee, and was Co-Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee—all while working as Staff Director of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Later, Hall felt called to leave Capitol Hill and offer his service to a ministry that reflected his deeply held values and faith. In August 2002, under the former deanship of the Very Rev. Martha J. Horne, Hall began work at VTS heading the Office of Institutional Advancement.
