Legendary three decades of service.

After 35 years of volunteering with Junior Achievement teaching just about every program offered, Bill Taylor is an education all-star.

Bill began teaching with Junior Achievement while living in Houston, then when his career moved to 3M Austin he requested to continue that work in the state capital. In a typical school year, Bill has taught about ten JA classes, and he’s taught just about every program offered. Known to students as “Mr. Bill,” he loves sharing his knowledge with our youth.

Bill was recognized as 3M’s Corporate Volunteer of the Year in 1997 – little did everyone know at the time that he was just getting started! Outside of JA, Bill volunteers as a judge at science fairs, volunteers with Meals on Wheels and BookSpring, plus advocates in his industry as part of the Texas Alliance for Minorities in Engineering.

We had the privilege of celebrating Bill outside of Canyon Vista Middle School, a place that he often volunteers. Check out Bill’s Legend page for his full story, photos, and more!
