An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that Hall worked for U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows. He worked for U.S. Rep. Mark Walker.
Republican Kyle Hall of King was appointed over one other candidate Monday to serve out the unexpired term of former Rep. Bryan Holloway, a Stokes County Republican and education budget writer.
Holloway recently resigned his seat representing Stokes and Rockingham counties to take a lobbying job with the N.C. School Boards Association.
Gov. Pat McCrory will sign off on the appointment. Hall, 25, will be the youngest member of the General Assembly. He said he plans to run for the seat in 2016.

After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Hall worked for Americans for Prosperity and as a research assistant for former Sen. Neal Hunt, a Raleigh Republican. He has worked for U.S. Rep. Mark Walker since January. A Facebook picture posted Monday shows Hall celebrating with family and friends over hot dogs at Dairi-O.
Hall said he was honored to have the opportunity to serve. “Bryan Holloway has been a great conservative leader for us the past 11 years and I look forward to finishing his sixth term and getting to work,” he said. “I hope to promote good conservative reforms that will put my district and our state towards the path of a more prosperous future.”
