Brother Bill Welk illuminated with many dynamic characteristics.
He was not only loyal, but had charisma unlike most
people you meet. Bill gave a hand when needed without question and stood up
for what he believed in while leading many of us in the right direction
and inspiring us to be better people.
could also tell stories like none other. His stories not only made you
laugh, but kept you at the edge of your seat begging to hear more. He
had such a good heart and had a genuine personality. It is truly
tragic to lose such a young kind hearted person, but it is a wonderful
privilege to be able to instill Bill’s thoughts and ways into all of us by
forming this scholarship bearing his name. Not only does it keep Bill’s
memory alive, but allows us to keep giving in his name.
