William "Billy" Quigley Jr., born October 6, 1987, was a dedicated student leader who earned a position on the executive board of the University Program Board as the director of membership and began "Making Redbird Moments." Billy was majoring in business and finance at Illinois State University when he was involved in a fatal car accident on November 26, 2008. This endowment honors student leaders at Illinois State in honor of Billy's enthusiasm, dedication, and pride by recognizing two student leaders annually with a monetary award. The two awards are: 1) University Program Board Full Board Member of the Year and 2) Leader in Action Award. Both awards are named in honor and in memory of Billy Quigley. Endowment assets are invested in the Illinois State University Foundation's long-term investment pool.
