Melinda Hall is the recipient of a woman of distinction award.
As of Tuesday, March 13, 2018
GRANGEVILLE A local woman with a longtime presence was recently selected to be included in the forthcoming Trademark Women of Distinction Honors Edition.
Hall was selected for “demonstrating dedication, leadership and professional excellence,” the press release read.
Hall is the manager of Big Country 92.7 KORT Radio, a job she has held for 28 years.
“I did a little bit of everything prior to that,” she smiled. She owned a health food store in Arizona, sang in Las Vegas and worked in a dental office. Before starting in her position at KORT, she worked at Walker’s Jewelry for five years.
Hall had heard about Grangeville prior to moving here and wanted to live somewhere with four seasons, she said.
“I love it here at KORT – I’m a people person and I just love to deal with people,” she said.
Hall is community-minded, involved in Animal Ark, Grangeville Merchants and Oktoberfest, as well as having been a past officer for the Grangeville Chamber of Commerce.
“My church family is my family,” she said of Abundant Life Fellowship. “I give all the glory for good in my life to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
For her award, Hall received a plaque and will receive a “Trademark Women of Distinction,” when it is printed.
“I am so honored — I don’t always feel like I do that much, but it is no nice to be recognized,” Hall said.
