In this critical alumni role, Billy is tasked with building relationships with a wide range of alumni; communicating with alumni through a variety of media; and collaborating with colleagues in a range of university offices to create and maintain pathways for strong alumni participation. Additionally, Billy will be responsible for serving as a liaison between the National Alumni Association and regional alumni organizations and campus leadership. His tenure begins July 16, 2018.

Instrumental in establishing the Dallas Alumni Chapter’s first endowment, which provides financial support to students, he led numerous initiatives, including increasing scholarships provided to incoming Freshmen from the Dallas area, completing a $200,000 commitment for the Panther Stadium project, and developing leadership roles for millennial alumni resulting in their increased participation within the chapter.

Billy’s passion for Prairie View is evident and he strongly believes in generously giving back to his alma mater which, he says, has given so much to him and others. His highest goal is to build relationships and inspire alumni to be involved in the great legacy of PVAMU.
“Prairie View A&M University continues to produce productive people. It has a bright future ahead with unlimited opportunities for growth. Our alumni family plays a major role in our continued success and I am excited to work with our alumni to get them engaged as we make the university the best that it can be for future generations of Panthers,” said Billy.
