Development Officer Bill Cherry will celebrate his 44th year with JBS this year. Bill started working for the society in 1968 as a JBS Coordinator for Oklahoma. In 1979 he was made the Major Coordinator for the southeast United States and then moved to Georgia. Bill became a member of the development staff in 1992 and covered 10 states for JBS, where he still serves today.
Bill attended Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas and SMU in Dallas where he completed studies in Advanced Traffic And Transportation. After college he worked for the Texas Pacific Railway as a Mgt. Trainee before working for the Society.
Today, Bill lives in Richardson, Texas with his loving wife, Mary Ellen. He enjoys spending time in Georgia with his three children, 6 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
He has been an avid runner for the past 40 years, running daily, and during the past ten years competed as a nationally rank age group competitor in both duathlons and triathlons. Bill loves to read, bike, and climb mountains. During the past 18 months he has been participating in a weekly radio talk show on a Fox talk show station in Midland, Texas where he discusses The John Birch Society and the issues facing us today.
FUN FACT: Bill and his wife collect wine and he loves to hold wine tasting events for friends over the holidays and for special occasions. Most of all, he enjoys his local Church activities and telling new prospects about The John Birch Society.
Bill would like to say: Freedom has an address! http://www.jbs.org
