Middle Bucks Institute of Technology recently honored Mr. William H. Yerkes for fifty-four years of service as a member of the Middle Bucks Area Vocational Technical School Authority. Mr. Yerkes first became associated with the school in April 1967 when the property now known as Middle Bucks Institute of Technology was a farm field. He was influential in overseeing the construction of the school, which first opened in 1969 and subsequent building projects as well. Through his role as Chairperson for the Authority, Mr. Yerkes has always been very conscientious to make fiscally responsible and reflective decisions on matters related to the school building and property. His dedication as member of our school community is unprecedented and his commitment and association with Middle Bucks will long be remembered.
