Bill & Nancy Doemel's Retirement Celebration  

Dean of the College Gary Phillips paid tribute to Bill Doemel. He said, "Your teaching wasn’t just focused on the students. I remember the day I was walking home and we’d been doing some work on the Lilly Grant, and Bill came up to me and said, 'You have to understand that this is about students!'

"He did this with his index finger in my chest. I remember not only the truth and power of that  but also the fact that you help hold people and the college accountable for the things that matter the most, in the classroom with your teaching colleagues, with your administrative colleagues, with the alums who come back and acknowledge not just that you’re here, but that you have continued all these years to hold the mission of the place in your heart and make us mindful of it."
