It is with Pride…

It is with pride to recognize Bill Wellman as a patriot, a Marine, and a revered business leader. Renowned for creative projects that have benefited our region and state, his latest endeavor of honoring our nation’s Fallen by playing Taps in communities is both groundbreaking and historic. It is groundbreaking because he is using an innovative technology to remind American of the sacrifices of thise who served our nation. It is historic because the playing of Taps in downtowns reaches new audiences with a bugle call whose origins date back to the Civil War. Indeed, Bill is calling us back to our roots as Americans by reminding us to pass on these traditions to future generations. The Society of Innovators proudly celebrates Bill as a remarkable innovator and a Great American!
