Married pair of extended campus students receive criminal justice award

A husband and wife pair of students from Lees-McRae College’s Western Piedmont Community College extended campus site were awarded the Criminal Justice Award in May for their excellent academic success.

Danny and Lisa Hall of Morganton, N.C. completed their Associate of Applied Science (AAS) from Western Piedmont Community College before transferring to Lees-McRae College’s extended campus criminal justice program based out of the Foothills Higher Education Center in the fall of 2013. After two years of hard work in the program, Danny and Lisa were both awarded the Criminal Justice Award, an honor given to graduating seniors who have worked hard throughout their tenure at Lees-McRae, enjoyed much academic success, had a positive and self-starting disposition, and remained balanced in regards to their personal and professional lives.

Danny and Lisa both graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) in criminal justice on May 9, 2015 on the main campus of Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, N.C.


Classes are offered at local sites in the evenings and online to provide easy access to education.


A special fee structure for extended campus students makes these degree completion programs affordable for everyone.


All programs are accredited by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and by additional regulatory bodies where applicable.
