William “Bill” Fox ’60 of Decatur, Ga., received the Emory Medal from the Emory Alumni Association for his personal and professional dedication to the university. Fox went to Emory in 1971, where he began his administrative career while pursuing a doctorate in religion and literature. He was well-known on campus for his personal approach, which included memorizing students’ names before he met them so that he could call them by their first name. In 1991, Fox was named vice president for institutional advancement where he took on the role of Emory's top fund-raiser and one of its most prominent ambassadors. In this role, Fox helped raise $2 billion in gifts for the university and assisted the university in becoming the nationally-recognized institution it is today. Since his time at Hendrix, Bill Fox has continued to be a campus leader.
