From the Board of Trustees
At this sad time, all of us on the Board of Trustees for
Viterbo University express our sympathy to Dr. Medland's family and to the
Viterbo community where he served as President until 2006. Our prayers and thoughts are with everyone
who knew Bill.
Bill had a passionate dedication to keeping the Catholic
Franciscan identity of Viterbo at the forefront. He was totally committed to improving
Viterbo’s enrollment, endowment, and physical facilities, which he did in
significant ways. Bill’s leadership
contributed not only to the Viterbo community but also to the La Crosse
community. His legacy is one that is
treasured by our Board of Trustees.
Our lives are richer because Bill Medland shared his life
with us in various ways. He also served
as an inspiring model of living with cancer courageously and gracefully. We will miss him. May he rest in peace.
Kent C. Handel
Chairperson, Board of Trustees
