Widener’s Outstanding Alumnus for 2011 Named “Teacher as Hero” by National Liberty Museum

May 18, 2011

David M. Hall. EdD ’06, winner of the university’s 2011 Outstanding Alumnus Award in April, is profiled in The Philadelphia Inquirer today “Now in his 13th year of teaching, Hall, 37, recently received a ‘Teacher as Hero’ award from the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the latest in a long string of teaching laurels,” the article by Inquirer staff writer Adrienne Lu says.  “The Liberty Museum cited Hall’s field trips to courtrooms and prisons in Philadelphia and his work as an adviser for the school Gay-Straight Alliance. ”

Earlier this year, Hall, a social studies teacher at North Penn High School, was featured  in the spring issue of Widener Magazine for his efforts in preventing bullying in schools.
