Beth Calder ($500) Fox Valley Technical College, Appleton, WI
Bill had a passion for AITP/DPMA through his many years of service not only to his chapter but the region and the association as well. He served as a past DPMA Association President and he was instrumental in creating the original DPMA Model Curriculum many years ago. A more in-depth article about bill can be found in the 2006 AITP Information Executive/Nanosecond archives at In Memory of Bill Reaugh.
Editors Note by Kevin Jetton: Ironically, Bill's grandson was a member of Boy Scout Troop 90 in San Antonio (Chris Mulverhill) and I serve as the Troop 90 Committee Chair. His mom was the daughter of Bill Reaugh - I never knew that until she happened to ask me about the signature block of my emails which listed the Foundation of IT Education. Even more so, one year, I helped her get tickets for the Holiday River Parade the day after Thanksgiving when we turn the holiday lights on the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk and literally have a parade on floats that really float on the river. It was the Reaugh family that enjoyed that parade that year together!
