Born in Roanoke, Virginia, Cline Hall's family roots go back for several generation in Botetourt County, VA. His father was a Southern Baptist pastor, so his family moved around to several towns in Virginia and North Carolina. However, most of his high school years were spent at William Fleming High School in Roanoke. He is married and has one son and three grandsons who live close by. He spends a lot of time with them as they are usually at his house every weekend. Right now they are the joy in his life as he watches them develop. The oldest one will be a senior at Liberty Christian Academy in the fall of 2008. After serving as Chairman of the History Department for 18 years, he recently retired from that position, but still teaches a full load. His specialty is the history of the American South and the Civil War and Reconstruction. A love of that period of time was instilled in him while taking classes as an undergraduate at the University of Richmond where he could visit the places studied. Since he has been at Liberty University from 1977, he has been able to see all the new academic developments and new buildings go up on campus. It has been his pleasure to be associated with Christian higher education and he truly believes that what is happening at Liberty University is essential for the future of our country. By training "Champions for Christ" we can have a part in trying to preserve our Christian heritage. Dr. Hall also works with the Intership program.
