Stephanie Hall receives 2016 Women's Educational GrantPosted on Nov 29, 2016
Louisville, KY (December 3, 2016) – Stephanie Hall of Vine Grove, KY is the recipient of Kentucky Farm Bureau’s (KFB) 2016 Women’s Educational Grant. The announcement was made at the organization’s 97th annual meeting, held at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville.
The $1,500 Women’s Educational Grant is awarded annually to a female non-traditional student who is interested in resuming her education after leaving school to fulfill either family or work-related responsibilities.
After graduating from high school in 1985, Hall attended the University of Louisville (UofL) and obtained her Associate of Science degree in Radiologic Technology. Soon after, she got married and had three children. Because of the educational degree she had earned, Hall was able to work full or part time as an x-ray technician over the past 29 years while being a fulltime mother.
“My husband and I felt raising our children and seeing to their education was our number one priority,” she said. “Now, all three have graduated from high school and two from college.”
In August of 2013, Hall decided to return to college to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Leadership and Learning at UofL.
“This grant will help me continue pursuing my degree, making it possible for me to teach other students with an interest in a medical career,” she said.
Hall added that her career as an x-ray technician has been fulfilling but stressful because of all the physical demands.
“As I begin to transition to a less demanding work environment, the need to develop and provide leadership to the next generation is my motivation,” she said.
Hall has been active in many civic organizations and community activities over the years including a softball and basketball coach; Junior Achievement and Boy Scout Troop volunteer; and PTA president. She and her husband Michael are members of Hardin County Farm Bureau.
