Laureate 2017

Wilfred C. (Bill) Bussing, III, Attorney at Law, is most comfortable out of the limelight, but his achievements are far too significant not to be celebrated. Described as a “humble, quiet leader,” Bussing is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and champion of countless causes. An Evansville native, Bussing has had a successful estate planning practice since 1989. He is fiercely passionate about the community and believes that caring, committed residents are what make Evansville great. His passion is most visible with the Evansville Otters, which he and his family have owned since 2001. During this time, the Frontier League team has grown in competitive rank and popularity, attracting thousands annually to Bosse Field.

Bussing’s life work reflects a true passion for giving. He is President of the Bussing-Koch Foundation, Inc., the Cecil A. and Mabel Lene Hamman Foundation, Inc., Emporia, Inc. and the Notre Dame Club of the Tri-State. His other posts have included director of the Bower-Suhrheinrich Foundation, University of Evansville trustee, board member of the Catholic Education Foundation, Habitat of Evansville, EVSC Superintendent’s Business Council, Annunciation Parish Finance Committee and more. Consequently, Bussing has enabled hundreds of thousands of dollars in community contributions.

Bussing graduated from Memorial High School and earned his bachelor’s degree from University of Evansville. He earned his M.B.A. and M.A. from University of Notre Dame and his J.D. degree from Notre Dame Law School. In 2015, Bussing received the Leadership Evansville 20th Anniversary Individual Achievement – Trusteeship Award and the Evansville-Vanderburgh County Human Relations Commission Sadelle Berger Award.
