Bill Lockyear, retiring CFO of the Oregon Province.
Oregon Province's CFO receives award

Bill Lockyear, longtime chief financial officer of the Oregon Province who is retiring later this year, was awarded the province's John Traynor Award for his decades of dedicated service to the Northwest Jesuits. 

Oregon Provincial Fr. Scott Santarosa presented the award at an informal ceremony with colleagues and Jesuits on Oct. 20. The John Traynor Award was established in 2004 by the Oregon Province. It honors leaders who foster collaboration among lay people and Jesuits. Traynor was the first lay president of a Jesuit high school in the U.S. - Gonzaga Preparatory School in Spokane. Since then it was has been awarded to a pastoral minister, a parish volunteer, a university professor and others. 

Lockyear was praised for his long career with the province - which has spanned over twenty years. He is retiring later this year. 

Fr. Stephen Sundborg, who established the Traynor award, was also the provincial when Lockyear was hired. 

"Bill came to understand and to love our wider mission and saw how he could contribute to that mission. There is no question he upgraded our whole financial system," said Fr. Sunborg. "I think Jesuits have come to feel that Bill is a Jesuit at heart. His length of service is remarkable; more remarkable is how he has served so personally, fully committedly and lovingly." 

The Oregon Province thanks Bill Lockyear for his service and wishes him all the best in his retirement.
