Bill moved to Midland when he was six years old. Not only was he an outstanding student while at Midland High School, he was an exceptional athlete, too. He loved basketball, football and baseball and succeeded in all 3 sports. While at Midland High, he was the President of the Texas Association of Student Councils, and following his graduation from Midland in 1964, he participated in the Senate Youth Program.Truly he is the best of the best. Bill has always been very quiet and humble, and I have always admired Bill for his successful career, outstanding work and his commitment to his family. Bill is what he is…a true Midland “Water Drinker.”
Bill graduated from New Mexico Military Institute in 1966 and the University of North Carolina in 1968. After completing undergraduate studies, he attended law school at Southern Methodist University and earned a juris doctor degree in 1971. He is now employed by Wood, Thacker & Weatherly, in Denton, TX . Bill still remains a top-rated attorney in Denton. He was selected to Super Lawyers for 2006 – 2007, 2009 – 2020. He is a true stand out among attorneys in the field.
