Billy Quigley

Billy Quigley was a beloved member of the 2008-2009 UPB Executive Board. Billy served as the Director of Membership before passing away as a result of a tragic car accident. Billy was incredibly dedicated to Illinois State University, the University Program Board, and all that it stands for. Billy will forever be remembered as a "Big Deal" at ISU.

Remembering Redbirds

In April of 2013, the University Program Board commemorated a program to Bill Quigley known as "Remembering Redbirds." Students, faculty, and staff wrote messages on ribbons to all fallen Redbirds and were tied onto evergreen trees.
