BRATTLEBORO — F. William "Bill" Holiday Jr. will be inducted into the Vermont Principals Association Hall of Fame on May 4 at the Capitol Plaza Hotel Plaza and Conference Center in Montpelier.

The Brattleboro Union High School graduate was a two-way all-state football player for two years for the Colonels, and was a running back as a sophomore on the state championship team. He was a two-time all-state basketball player and a standout infielder in baseball. He began his 40-year coaching career while attending Windham College. He eventually coached Brattleboro's varsity football team, along with both boys and girls basketball. Since 1994, he has been the "Voice of the Colonels" by broadcasting football, basketball, baseball and softball on the WTSA radio station.

The May 4 ceremony will begin with a 5 p.m. reception and a 6 p.m. banquet. The induction will begin at 6:45 p.m. Banquet tickets are $45 and a sellout is expected. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. You can contact Delina Benway at 802-229-0547 for reservations and more information.
