When he was a junior at Washington and Lee, Billy Webster, of the Class of 1979, ran in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. As it turns out, he was just getting warmed up. Currently chairman of the board of the Greenville (S.C.)

William M. Webster, IV announced he had donated funds to The Nature Conservancy of South Carolina (TNC), before delivering a prepared address to the conservancy board and audience at this year’s fall meeting. “So what should we do? What can we do? Not surprisingly, my answer is to support the Nature Conservancy in S.C. That’s a real answer, not just a throw-away line and it’s the choice that my family made. Here’s why: First, TNC – celebrating its 50th anniversary in S.C. – has a long history of doing real and important and substantive work to protect our natural resources and special places from the mountains to the sea…” “From that beginning, TNC has led the way in conservation and environmental stewardship across the state… Basically what that means is that every state is developing a strategic plan similar to ours, one based on the four priorities of: Protect land and water, Tackle climate change, Provide food and water sustainability, Build healthy cities.”
