  • Football, Track and Field
  • Hall of Fame Class of 2003
Chuck served the Willamette Athletic Department for more than a quarter century, working at Bearcat football and track & field events as official scoreboard operator, time keeper and course clerk. Missing fewer than five games during his tenure, Chuck was a reliable and exemplary volunteer for the Bearcats until he retired from his duties in 2001. He was given the NAIA District II Meritorious Service Award in 1989 and awarded the Sparks Medallion for service to Willamette University in 2001. Chuck was a member of the Cardinal Round Table for many years and continues as a member of the Bearcat Club. It is not uncommon to see him helping out with Willamette's band at special events and he has been an active member of the Salem Alumni Club and reunion committees. Chuck graduated from Willamette in 1956 with a degree in music education, and spent 30 years as a teacher and administrator in the Salem-Keizer public school system.
