This year’s recipient perfectly embodies CWA’s Tarrier Values of compassion, perseverance, respect, integrity, and excellence, and also fulfills all the aspects we seek in an Alum of the Year to represent the alumni community.
We were honored to announce at this year’s “Heart and Sole” Spirit Auction that Trevor Will, class of 1993, is the CWA 2022 Alum of the Year!
Trevor is one of CWA’s greatest alumni champions. As a graduate who now lives and works in the area, his care for and involvement doesn’t end with Charles Wright, but extends well into the broader Tacoma and Pierce County area. When I first met Trevor, I was immediately struck by what a great conversationalist he was—but not in the way that you might think. Trevor not only has a lot to offer, but he always asks great questions, truly seeking to understand others and their perspectives. Trevor isn’t afraid to express opinions that differ from a group. He cares deeply for the success of Charles Wright Academy and keeps that at the forefront of his involvement with the school at all times.
The Will family business, Titus-Will Automotive Group, has continued to find great success under Trevor’s leadership. I’m sure you’ve seen the clever ads in which Trevor and Courtney Will ’95 star, and many in our community have probably bought cars from Titus-Will. But more significantly, the company is also known broadly in the community for their generosity and commitment to making the South Sound stronger. In fact, during the pandemic when many companies froze their contributions, Titus-Will continued to give to non-profits and other important causes at a time when they were needed most.
