William F. Bauman '74 Receives 2003 Medallion of Merit

In recognition of his service to Moravian College, the Alumni Association honored William F. Bauman ’74 with its Medallion of Merit at its annual Reunion Luncheon on May 31.

Bill’s active involvement in the Moravian College Theatre Company began when he was a student. His accomplishments included re-founding Moravian’s Iota Theta chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, the national theater honorary society. At his graduation, Bill received Moravian’s Patricia Erskine Memorial Award for excellence in theater company leadership. Since then he has been the most supportive alumnus of Moravian’s theater program. Bill’s involvement in more than 100 productions at Moravian over a 20-year period has included volunteer roles as actor, director, stage and property manager, production coordinator, lighting and sound technician, costumer, set designer, and publicist.

Bill earned a Master of Fine Arts in theater from Ohio University. His administrative career has included serving as assistant coordinator of student services at St. Luke’s School of Nursing, where he played an integral role in the development of the St. Luke’s Commemorative School of Nursing at Moravian College.

Bill’s alumni support has extended beyond the theater and nursing departments. He served on the Art Auction committee, was a patron for the Art Auction and the Antiques Show, participated as a Freshman Orientation dinner host, served as co-chair for his 25th reunion, was a member of the Commission on the Future, and has faithfully attended numerous alumni programs. In 2001 the Alumni Association recognized Bill with its Unsung Hero Award.

Currently Bill works full-time as administrative assistant in Moravian’s Music Center and part-time as costume master and production coordinator for the Moravian College Theatre Company.
