William Everhart '74 MBA '86, died February 2, 2016, at his home in Farragut, Tennessee. Bill grew up in Houston, TX, where he attended Strake Jesuit College Prep. He moved to California to attend SCU as an undergrad. During his Junior year Bill was "the cool RA" on 8th floor Swig. Later that year he ran and was elected the 1973-74 ASUSC President. His "Vote for Bill Everhart" t-shirts with the Mr Peanut logo helped result in a landslide election. After obtaining his BA, Bill worked at the campus post office for several years. He maintained an active interest in music, playing guitar and singing both in a band (High Tide) and solo. In the Pipestage venue beneath Graham he once opened up for comedian Steve Martin, and the band High Tide played at Pipestage. After completing his MBA in 1986 Bill became Assistant VP for Finance at SCU. A love of outdoors prompted Bill to commute to SCU from a home above the San Lorenzo River in the redwoods of Felton, and to take backpacking excursions in the Sierra Nevada and in Canada. In 1992 Bill became CFO and VP for Business and Finance at Mt St Mary's College in Los Angeles. He moved to Marina del Rey, bought a BMW and power boat, and became "LA Bill". It was there he met and married his wife April. In 1999 he moved to Rancho Cucamonga and worked at Claremont Graduate University where his roles were VP for Finance, Treasurer, and Sr VP for Finance and Administration. In 2004 he was appointed Interim President of the Claremont Graduate University. His work at Claremont earned him an honorary PhD in 2005. During that time Bill and April had a daughter, Caitlin. Bill's final career acts were to move to Sweetwater, Tennessee where he started his "Purring Dog" organic food farm, as well as continuing his efforts at music writing and performance. He issued a solo CD, "Different Hats", and then formed a band Exit 62 which performed in the Knoxville area and issued a CD "This Way". Bill's greatest interest was in his daughter Caitlin's life, where Bill spent many hours as a soccer dad and in raising Caitlin to be a great human being. The many "hats" that Bill wore through his life brought him close friendships to many people. He will be missed by all. He is survived by sister-in-law Cynthia Everhart '76 and brother George Everhart '69.
