For P. William Benard sports have been an essential part of every stage of his active life. Like many athletes looking at the world of professional sports, P. William participated in basketball, baseball and football from little league into college. After college he changed his involvement in sports from that of player to a coach and official. During college P. William shared his enthusiasm for sports with fans as a sports announcer for Northeastern Universitys student run radio station. He also volunteered, coaching youth girls and boys basketball, softball and baseball teams in public high school and elementary schools. After college graduation he moved to Atlanta, GA becoming a sports reporter for WXIA/NBC television further developing his knowledge of collegiate and professional sports, as well as sports broadcasting on the national and local levels. P. Williams knowledge is not limited to sports and athletics. While working as Program Director for Junior Achievement he learned and taught key economic management principles to teachers and young students. He also gained an appreciation for the importance of equipping young people with financial tools necessary to handle new found earnings when they are blessed with career opportunities after college and in their professional lives. As a Project Manager for Verizon Business, P.
