School Superintendent Dr. Joy Collins presented Hallman with a certificate of appreciation. “We sincerely thank Mr. Ron Hallman,” she said. A short reception followed the presentation.
In response to this recognition, Hallman expressed his strong support of public education. “I have been a life-long supporter of public education and I hope I have been able to help further the education of our kids in some way,” Hallman said. “My legal approach has always been to prevent litigation before it occurs … this has allowed our educators to spend their time educating children rather than in the courtroom and has also prevented the waste of taxpayer funds.”
Hallman was pleasantly surprised with the recognition at last week’s board meeting. “This recognition of my 36 years was a total surprise to me and I thank Superintendent Collins, Chairman NeSmith and all the board members. I look forward to continuing as school board attorney for several more years,” he said.
