Bill Taylor

Spartan Nation is shaken and hurting today as we mourn the loss of our colleague, mentor, coach, and friend, Vice President of Instruction Bill Taylor. Bill was extremely respected at Southwestern Community College; a humble and dedicated leader who would help anywhere needed at any time of day or night. His legacy will live on at Southwestern for years to come. Our thoughts are with Bill's family.
