ULS honors Bill Shelden

Bill Shelden

May 15, 2014
University Liggett School will honor community leader Bill Shelden with its top honor, the Distinguished Alumni Award, at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 15.

Shelden will be presented with the award by Board of Trustees President John W. Stroh III at the Distinguished Alumni Award Ceremony, held in conjunction with Alumni Reunion Weekend.

Shelden, a 1968 alum of Grosse Pointe University School (one of University Liggett School's predecessor schools), is recognized for his longtime commitment and service to the school.

He spent many years on the school's Board of Trustees, including serving as Board president from 1991-93. His vision and inspiration also has led to programs that further enrich student and faculty experiences. They include a Washington, D.C., trip for 10th-graders that has become an annual event, as well as venture grants for faculty members to pursue unique professional development experiences.

"Bill's service to the school has made a lasting and meaningful impact on the ways in which our faculty teach and the ways in which our students learn," said Head of School Joseph P. Healey. "We are grateful for his commitment to our school's mission, and we are proud to recognize him as one of our most distinguished alumni."

He and his wife, Sally, have three children, Jeffrey, Kristin and Andrew, all of whom are University Liggett School alumni.
