E&H a Better Place, Thanks to Dr. Tal Stanley

Posted by Leah Wilson
The Bonner Scholars Program at Emory & Henry College honored Dr. Tal Stanley for his twenty-four years of service as director of the program on August 23rd, 2021. 

Tal recently transitioned into the newly created role of Resident Scholar for the Citizenship of Place. Robert Hackett, president of The Corella & Bertram F. Bonner Foundation, joined the celebration via Zoom to express his appreciation, to recognize Tal’s leadership, and to also note that Tal had served longer than any other Bonner director in the history of the program. Also joining the meeting remotely were Tal’s son, David, his daughter-in-law, Molly, and his daughter, Sarah. Tal’s wife, Susan, joined a number of other community members to surprise Tal midway through the meeting. A video compilation of well wishes from former Bonner Scholars, Civic Innovation majors, and former staff members was presented and Tal was given artwork by William A. Fields as a token of appreciation along with an enormous cake that was shared by everyone. President John Wells and Provost Michael Puglisi also shared reflections and made comments recognizing Tal’s work on behalf of the College and noting the importance of Tal’s new role in moving toward a better understanding of the complicated history of Emory & Henry as an institutional citizen of southwest Virginia and the larger Appalachian region.

  • Dr. Tal Stanley honored for 24 years of service at first Bonner meeting of 2021.
