10 Who Make a Difference: Bill Wiktor

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Bill Wiktor is a man who has found a way to use his skills to help others. He is one of our KTTC/United Way of Olmsted County 10 Who Make a Difference award recipients.

Wiktor has volunteered in so many ways all throughout Olmsted County, and is the incoming president of the Rotary Club of Rochester.

He's helped organize events like the Wit, Wisdom, and Wine, and assisted countless low income individuals complete their tax forms with the United Way.

You can also find him volunteering his hours at foundations such as the Choral Arts Ensemble, the Rochester Public Library Foundation, St. Francis Church, Minnesota Public Radio and the Rochester Senior Center and Foundation.

“It's part of the philosophy of rotary is to do good in the world and to give back to the community, so, it really dovetails with my own personal philosophy. And then, the next reason is, I learn so much by doing things. I learn about the people, I learn about the community and I just enjoy the fellow volunteers,” Wiktor said.

Bill will be honored Wednesday along with the other 9 recipients of the KTTC/United Way of Olmsted County 10 Who Make a Difference award at Soldiers Field.
