Bill joins Young America’s Foundation following a 22-year career at Hillsdale College, where he served as executive director of gift and estate planning.
His journey to conservatism began in college in 1980 when he and three other students helped organize a visit by Governor Reagan to visit the Claremont College campus in Southern California. Bill recalls, “Looking out and smiling at the protestors and their adolescent boos, Governor Reagan eventually calmed the crowd and delivered a powerful speech. ‘You see?’ he quipped as he left the podium amidst thundering applause, ‘Nothing to it.’ He was the smoothest man I ever saw.”
Prior to his years at Hillsdale College, Bill spent several years as an adjunct professor of American history at California State University, where he held the departmental distinction of being one of eleven known conservatives on campus. He also taught Advanced Placement United States History and Economics at The Polytechnic School in Pasadena, California, as well as teaching at The Madeira School in McClean, Virginia.
Bill and his wife, Nancy, have two children, William and Krista. The family attends Hope Christian Church and serves as the legal guardians of two lawless Labrador Retrievers, Bella and Pearl.
