Hometown Hero: Bill Bond

In 1960, Bill Bond was a college student at Duke University when he needed help. Bond was having trouble with his studies but didn't know why.

After being diagnosed with what is now known as dyslexia, Bond was treated and went on to a successful career in Dallas in commercial real estate.

Since 2004, he's volunteered at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.  He likes people, loves to help and wants to give back.

His daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia and she was treated at Texas Scottish Rite. Her life is successful, in part, because of the hospital, and her dad gives thanks by donating almost 1,700 volunteer hours since 2004.

On Mondays, when Bond, a 76-year-old grandfather is in town, you'll find him working in the hospital's cafeteria. He's the host with the most, bussing tables, cleaning up spills, pointing out the pasta and more.

Bond is an elite cyclist, hiker and runner. He loves to stay active and he's always on the move when he volunteers.

If you'd like more information on being a host in the cafeteria that serves 1,200 diners a day at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, call 214-559-7825 and ask for Volunteer Services.
