Monday Mission, April14, 2014

Across that span of time, Bill has served many important roles for Samford, including sports information director in his early years here. Thirty years ago he worked with former President Tom Corts to develop the concept for Seasons, Samford’s award-winning news magazine, and he is the only editor that publication has had. Bill continues to tell the Samford story every day, not just in the words that he writes and shares, but in the way that he lives his life and serves the university. Coincidentally, today is his birthday.

As we celebrate Bill's service today, we also commemorate two Samford stalwarts lost this weekend, W. T. (Dub) Edwards and Martha Ann Cox. Their legacies endure.

The world is better because of the loyalty, professionalism, commitment and service of Samford faculty and staff, past and present.
