About William Gray

Bill retired after 37 years from the Social Security Administration as the Deputy Commissioner for Systems where he managed the agency’s technology. After retirement, Bill wanted to use his skills, talents and knowledge for the next phase of life, so he formed a business where he consulted for several companies and government agencies. Bill loves to travel, so one opportunity that he took advantage of was to develop a program and teach an Information Technology (IT) Executive course to IT professionals from across the world in Turin, Italy each summer. Afterwards, he and his wife would travel through Europe. After he retired from Social Security, Bill also wanted to make a contribution to his community, so he engaged in several volunteer activities. Both of his children had received an outstanding education from Howard County Public Schools so, to help pay back, he joined the Bright Minds Foundation (the educational foundation of Howard County Public Schools) and eventually served as Board Chair. He also helped his local community by serving as chair of a Village Board in Columbia for several years. In addition, he judges for the National History Day contest at College Park, and handles service dogs at libraries, schools and hospitals for Fidos for Freedom. When Bill retired, he would have appreciated a service that could help him explore and reimagine ideas and opportunities to align his passions with his time and talents. To provide this opportunity to others is his reason for pursuing This Point Forward
