OAKWOOD — Lanier Technical College President Ray Perren recently recognized John Hall for his nearly three years of service to the college’s board of directors.

In a statement, Perren said the college “would not be going in the positive direction it is on without the hard work and dedication of outstanding board members like John Hall.”

“Our students, faculty, staff, board and trustees, make Lanier Technical College what it is,” he said. “John Hall is a big part of that.”

A veteran of the newspaper industry, Hall recently retired from the college’s board and as publisher of the Forsyth County News, South Forsyth News and the Dawson Community News, a position he had held for a decade.
