Would it surprise you to learn that our longest running volunteer and our oldest volunteer holds several Arkansas Senior Olympic records?
Bill Keller of Bella Vista has worked on our Family Selection Committee since the late 1990’s when the affiliate first came into being. He continues to make home visits to each and every applicant who is in the final stages of qualifying for a Habitat home.
Back to the Senior Olympic records….
Bill has been competing in the Arkansas Senior Olympics since 1989. In 2007 Bill won six gold medals. He started swimming in the Olympics in his 80’s and continues to do so at 94! His medal collection has grown to over 90, mostly in the freestyle and backstroke. Bill attributes his success to the excellent coaches he had in both high school and college.
Bill is living proof that age is only a deterrent if you let it be. Keep on swimmin’ on, Bill. You are awesome!
