Bill graduated from Copperas Cove High School and obtained an M.A. from Southwest Texas State University. He had extensive graduate studies in Higher Education Administration at Texas A&M University in College Station. He spent most of his career at Central Texas College in Killeen, starting in 1980 and retiring in 2011 as Vice Chancellor for Educational Programs and Support. During his 31 years at CTC, he also served as Associate Dean of Student Services, Dean of Guidance and Counseling, Public Information, and Continental Campus locations where he oversaw CTC’s operations on more than twenty Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine installations across the country. He considered his greatest accomplishments at CTC to be working directly with students to attain their educational goals as well as mentoring his peers to achieve their career aspirations.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to life-long friends Coleen and Rick Timmons of Copperas Cove, Margaret and the late Curtis Bay of Salado, his friends at CTC, the Dream Center in Los Angeles, and many friends he has made throughout his life.
