W.A. “Bill” Herington
W.A. “Bill” Herington was a C-SC basketball coach, physical education professor and athletic director at Culver-Stockton from 1938-1965. He was also named president of the NAIA in 1951, and inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame in 1955. Under his tenure, the C-SC men’s basketball team won multiple conference titles, as well as made five national tournament appearances. Generously funded through private gifts by alumni and friends, this building is in honor of Coach Herington’s many years of service to Culver-Stockton College.
