WINONA LAKE — The Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams at Grace College recently hired Alex Hall as the center’s Assistant Director.
Hall has served in the School of Online and Professional Education at Grace College since January 2014 in various coordinator and manager positions. Hall earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology, with minors in Environmental Studies and Business from Manchester University and is currently working toward his Master of Science degree in Nonprofit Management at Grace College. He was trained in lake and stream research under Dr. Jerry Sweeten at Manchester University and through a prestigious internship led by Dr. Gene E. Likens, a pioneer in these fields of science who has taught at Yale, Rutgers, and Cornell universities. Hall also has experience serving on boards and volunteering for local groups, including The Watershed Foundation and Kosciusko Youth Leadership Academy.
Hall’s role at the Lilly Center will be to offer support to Director Dr. Nate Bosch and strategically coordinate the center’s operations in research, education and collaboration. Bosch explained, “Alex’s experiences and education uniquely qualify him as our Assistant Director. We are excited to have him on the team and look forward to the expertise and insights he can give to our efforts in the future.”
“As a lifetime resident of Warsaw, I am thrilled to serve the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams and their staff in this new capacity,” Hall stated. He continued, “It is truly an honor to be provided with an opportunity to make new connections, build relationships in the community and help educate and engage local citizens to protect our natural water resources.”
The Assistant Director role at the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams was made possible by the substantial leadership gifts to the center’s endowment fund from Lilly Endowment Inc. and the Lilly family through the Ruth Lilly Philanthropic Foundation as announced this spring.
The Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams at Grace College conducts research, provides resources, engages and educates residents, and collaborates with local organizations in efforts to make the lakes and streams of Kosciusko County cleaner.
