Charlotte North Carolina South Stake President Ladd Hall received the 14th annual American Diabetes Association Father of the Year Award last month. He and his wife, Sally, have eight children, one of whom is serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Fort Collins, Colorado. Their family includes four adopted sons, and five of their children are married.
Hall, who was one of five Charlotte-area award recipients, is also executive vice president of the Nucor Corp.
The Father of the Year Awards program recognizes fathers “who portray and epitomize family, citizenship, charity, civility and responsibility in their everyday lives. These fathers not only have achieved success in their chosen fields, they also have found the time to be role models in raising their children,” according to a news release.
Hall was nominated by Nucor President and CEO John Ferriola, and in the months leading up to the awards dinner, worked to raise money to support the ADA efforts to advocate and fund research to assist in caring for the more than 29.1 million U.S. children and adults living with diabetes. The combined fundraising efforts of the five Charlotte-area fathers totaled nearly $519,000, an ADA record, according to a news release.
