Friends of William C. Hine Endowed Scholarship

“Friends of William C. Hine Endowed Scholarship” Recognizing Dr. Hines service to Alpha Sigma Lambda and his commitment to serving adult learners.

Dr. Hine currently serves as Dean of the School of Continuing Education at Eastern Illinois University, has been at EIU since 1986.  Throughout his career, Will has provided professional leadership in several professional associations, including vice-president in the American Association in Adult and Continuing Education, Board of Directors of ACHE, National Advisory Board of CAEL, and has served as president of the Illinois Council for Continuing Higher Education.

Dean Hine has been involved with ASL since 1980 and was instrumental in establishing the ASL Chapters at the University of Evansville and Eastern Illinois University and he is a strong supporter of ASL.  In 1996, the National Home Office of ASL was moved to the EIU campus with staff devoted strictly to ASL business.  Dean Hine has brought his considerable expertise to the organization not only by serving as a sponsor of the National Office but also through his representation of ASL at various national conferences such as UCEA, ACHE, and CAEL and more recently as the ASL Director of Marketing.

In 2002, Alpha Sigma Lambda executive officers and chapter representatives from member institutions established a distinguished service award, named it in Dr. Hine’s honor, and chose him as its first recipient to show their depth of appreciation for his continued service to the Society and to adult students nationwide.  

The William C. Hine Distinguished Service Award honors Chapter Councilors for their commitment to promoting lifelong learning, dedication to serving adult learners, and leadership to the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society.

The Alpha Sigma Lambda Adult Education Foundation provides scholarship opportunities annually through specifically endowed scholarships, the Triangle-Second Century Scholarships and the Board of Director’s scholarship to adult students enrolled at chapter institutions.

Since the founding of the ASLAEF in 1985, over $90,000 has been awarded in scholarship funds to undergraduate adult students.

2017 William C. Hine Distinguished Service Awardee Betty Telford

The William C. Hine Distinguished Service Award honors chapter councilors for their commitment to promoting lifelong learning, dedication to serving adult learners, and leadership to the Alpha Sigma Lambda National Honor Society.

“I joined the staff at Salem College in 2007 and have held a variety of positions. From the early days at Salem I well remember the first induction and the establishment of the Alpha Sigma Lambda Chapter, Chi Nu. I had been invited by several students being inducted and the initial membership was 8 students. Quickly the adult students learned the value of membership and invitations to join were coveted. By 2010, I volunteered to take over the duties of chapter adviser, planning two induction services each year, providing opportunities to expand leadership skills for members and educate the adult population and faculty on the value of membership.” – Betty Telford
