William W. (Bill) Everett, Jr. was born in Baltimore, Maryland on March 10, 1948. A life long resident of Harford County, he graduated from Be1 Air High School in 1966 and then attended Harford Community College for two years.
After serving in the United States Air Force, Bill was hired by Harford County Public Schools as an electronic technician. In 1984, Bill moved on to his present position as a Multimedia Specialist at the Directorate of Information Management United States Army Garrison, Aberdeen Proving Ground.
As a child, Bill started bowling duckpins with his family at a small place in Bel Air lovingly called "The Hole". By 1961 Bel Air had gained a tenpin house, Bob Turley Bowl. Both Bill and his mother worked at the bowling center, his mother at the counter and Bill as a pin chaser on week ends. As reimbursement for his work, Bill received free games.
During his years in the service, Bill bowled on teams that competed with other branches of the service. In 1973, it was back to Bel Air Bowl (formerly Bob Turley Bowl) where Bill joined with 9 other bowlers traveling to the ABC Nationals, Hoinke, Peterson and other tournaments through out the country, as well as local and state association tournaments. As Bill became more involved in bowling, it was suggested that he become a board member with the local association.
Bill is currently serving in his 18th year as a member of the Cecil- Harford Counties Bowling Association Board of Directors. During his 18 years of service, Bill served al Director for 11 years, Vice President For 5 years, President for 2 years, and as Assistant Executive Director (an appointed position) For the past several years. During his tern as President, Bill also fulfilled the office of Secretary treasurer (Execuive Director) due to the illness of the elected Secretary Treasurer at the time.
Bill has made many contributions to the association. Because of his computer knowledge, Bill was able to write a tournament package long before the association began using the ABC Tournament package. His package enabled the tournament officials to post results after each squad of howling, as opposed to waiting while the scores were tabulated by hand.
Bill is always there when the association needs him. Because of Bill's expertise, the association has an "in-house" computer technician. Computer repairman can be a costly investment; however, Bill is there to lend a hand in repairing, re-programming, or updating the association's computer equipment. And come tournament time, he is always there acting as a tournament official from start to finish, sometimes giving up most weekends from the beginning of March to the middle of June.
In 1992 Bill was elected a Life Member of the Cecil-Harford Counties Bowling Association for his many years of service.
Aside from his dedication to the local association, he is also a dedicated howler.
