University of Miami Icon and Longtime Village Resident Honored
June 24th 2019 was declared Dr. Bill Butler Day in Palmetto Bay. A surprise proclamation was bestowed on this distinguished 93-year old gentleman, who has lived in the Village for 50 years. Dr. Butler spent 33 years as Director of Student Affairs at the University of Miami before retiring in 1997. Among his many accomplishments during his tenure, he championed inclusion for ALL students and, long before Title IX, Dr. Butler helped to open the door for females to receive athletic scholarships to the U. Many UM students were lucky to have had Dr. Butler as a professor over the years, including Village Attorney Dexter Lehtinen who joined Mayor Cunningham and Councilmembers Fiore and Matson for today's recognition. Also on hand were three of Dr. Butler's children, Michael Butler, Jenny Wade and Rebecca Butler (we're sure daughter Barbara Pierce who couldn't make it wishes her Dad well!) We are so fortunate that Dr. Butler is part of our community. Congratulations.
