William got his collegiate start at LMC after graduating from St. Joseph High School.

He says of LMC, “I found the education at LMC to be very good, and it prepared me well for University of Michigan. I probably could not have afforded to go for a complete undergraduate program at University of Michigan, so LMC made that possible.”
The Clarence Beckwith Distinguished Alumni Award was presented to William Remus in 2010.
