Transcript A Wedding Story Senior Bill Hoover and his fiancee, Christie Brovillard, pose for their picture at Hoover's brother's wedding last year. I've always been very thankful for where I am. It's quite humbling to go and help people out I enjoy doing that ii Greek Community ° P e n $ Doors m William Hoover, a lechanical engineering senior, began attending the University of Houston after serving in the Marines, he was new to the Houston area and making friends became a priority. "I came to orientation, and during lunch time they had all the greeks there with all their tables," Hoover said. Hoover was tired of sitting at home, and he wasn't the kind of person who could go to class and then just hang out with high school friends. So he checked out four different houses. "Phi Kappa Theta was relatively a new chapter. They had started out maybe two years before I had gotten there, and I really liked to take on the challenge," Hoover said. Hoover decided to pledge Phi Kappa Theta in the fall of 1995, and a door of opportunities opened up. "I would never have been homecoming king, I would never have been the president of IFC, I never would have been the president of the frontiersmen or anything like that if it wasn't for being in the greek organization," Hoover said. It might seem to some that Hoover is your typical frat guy, but he can prove that being in a fraternity is more than just attending socials. Hoover attends St. Luke's Church, and from time to time he goes downtown to help the homeless by handing out items that his church has collected from donations. "I always carry a box of granola bars and some extra bottles of water. So whenever I see somebody on the corner I can give them some food and water," Hoover said. That's something that Hoover feels everyone can do. Hoover also participates in programs that allow him to interact with youths. "We're working with high schoolers with a design project I'm doing right now. It's like a high school/college/professional design team," Hoover said. There is more to being greek than just being part of a group. It's also about giving something back. "I've always been very thankful for where I am. It's quite humbling to go and help people out. I enjoy doing that," Hoover said. • by Iinda Canales William "Bill- Hoover is well- known among the Greeks at UH, but hek also popular among those who need him the most Providing the Entertainment jSenior Bill Hoover continues |to keep his spirits up while overseas in the Mediterranean during Desert Storm. 306 • PEOPLE BILL HOOVER • 307
