Bill retired from industry at the age of 65 and immediately began teaching full time in the IME Department for the next 20 years. During those years Bill was actively involved with the department, college, and university in a variety of capacities including charing major committees. Bill was a great friend to everyone and a favorite teacher among the students. In 2002 Bill was awarded the highest honor given to a faculty member: The George P. Hart Award for Outstanding Faculty Leadership (press release). Bill said many times that his work at Cal Poly Pomona was the most satisfying of his career. (Polycentric article)
