hen people discuss the legacy of Dr. Bill Graff’s career as a professor at LeTourneau University, the word legendary is fitting. After more than 40 years as both a full-time and part-time faculty member, Graff is retiring from LETU. The

difference he has made in students’ lives during his tenure is immeasurable. Graff’s influence on his students’ lives stretches far beyond the four walls of a classroom. He has not just been a valued teacher, but also a mentor, a spiritual guide and a friend. Several of his former students shared what he meant to them during their time at LeTourneau and even in their current lives.
