Rarely does NDSU have someone serve the university for 50 years, said Randy Mehlhoff, Langdon REC director, when he presented the award to Faller.

Faller started working in the Animal Husbandry department as a student in 1964 and became an assistant shepherd in 1966. He was named director of the Hettinger Research Extension Center (then called superintendent of the Hettinger substation) in 1969. Faller retired as the Hettinger REC director in 2005 but has continued to carry out a variety of responsibilities as part-time assistant director of the N.D. Agricultural Experiment Station.
