Bill Muir Receives National Fraternity Award

William L. "Bill" Muir, assistant vice president for community relations at Kansas State University, received the National President Award at the recent Alpha Tau Omega fraternity 75th Congress in Cleveland, Ohio.

The National President Award annually recognizes one alumnus member of the fraternity who has contributed in time, talent and treasure for an extended period of time. Miles L. McCall, ATO national president and vice president for alumni relations at Stephen F. Austin State University, made the presentation to Muir at the final banquet Aug. 10.

Muir has been chapter adviser for the Kansas State University chapter of ATO for almost 32 years.

He has served the national fraternity in various national offices for more than 27 years, most recently as a member of the national board of directors for nine years. He was re-elected by the board of directors as national secretary, a position he has held for the last seven years.

"Bill Muir is the epitome of service above self," McCall said when presenting the award. "He continues to be a leader in the fraternity, yet he loves advising our outstanding Delta Theta Chapter at Kansas State University. He is ‘Mr. ATO.’"

Delta Theta Chapter at Kansas State University received the Top Chapter Award for the fourth time in five years, ranking them as the No. 1 ATO chapter in the nation.
