Although it may seem like it, Financial Aid Manager Bill Vache does not live at Globe University. He does, however, put in some long hours with students to assist them with their financial aid needs. This dedication and hard work has landed Bill the title of Staff Member of the Quarter.
“Bill is well respected and well-liked by both students and staff which is very impressive,” said Regional Director Rocky Klitzke. “He really cares about every single student and helping them make their dreams a reality.”
Bill received his Bachelor of Arts in History from Millikin University in Decatur, IL. He says, “I started as a History major, changed to Economics, changed to Education, then back to History. Eventually I stopped changing because I needed to graduate sometime. I loved that the liberal arts taught me to think and I found the discipline interesting. You can never know everything.”
Bill started working for Globe University in March 2009 at the Madison West campus in financial aid and has been working with both the Madison East and West campuses ever since. “Before Globe, I worked for another college in admissions, then found my niche in financial aid. Before that I worked for a couple of years for a benefits administration company. I learned a lot about health insurance, 401K’s and pensions. I’ve always been interested in personal finance and I think that’s a main reason why I enjoy FA so much.”
What Bill Likes about Working at Globe
“I really enjoy the relationships in the Globe community,” Bill shares. “It’s small and personal. It’s easy to work with good people where you genuinely see students grow and make change in their lives. Sometimes they change the path of their family’s future and that’s powerful.”
