Bill Herald worked for 37 years with his family business in healthcare until the firm was sold.  Rather than staying with the acquiring company and, inspired by his faith and time as a member of Rotary Club of Dunwoody, Bill decided that having the rest of life "off" would be immoral.

He started the first week after leaving the company on a project to bring a Cristo Rey model high school to Atlanta to serve the low income families of the city.  Next month, 125 freshmen will begin classes at the school with a new freshman class to be added every year. Bill serves as the Director of the Corporate Work Study Program for the school.

What makes the Cristo Rey model unique is that each student qualifies for free and reduced lunch.  Also, each student works 5 days a month leased to a corporation.  The fee from the arrangement covers 60% of the cost of providing a college preparatory education to students who are typically 2 years behind academically.  Last year, over 1200 seniors graduated from the 26 Cristo Rey model schools around the country.  Every one was accepted to college.

Bill has three grown children who have earned Rotary honors and lives in Sandy Springs with Kathy, his wife of 30 years.
