Bill Hooper came to Yellow Springs to attend Antioch College. He liked it here. So he decided to stay on for a while.
Over the course of his long career as a building contractor Bill was responsible for the construction of over 300 homes, many in the Yellow Springs area. As a long-time member of the Antioch Board of Trustees he has overseen the construction of buildings for Antioch University here in Yellow Springs and across the country.
It was a year ago that Antioch University and Antioch College in Yellow Springs became two separate institutions. Antioch College Interim President, Matthew Derr, says they're moving forward with plans to reopen the college next fall. It's also been a big year for Antioch University.

One year ago this past weekend, Antioch University and Antioch College officially became two separate institutions. Next fall, the college plans to welcome students back to campus. As WYSO's Emily McCord reports, the plan is to start out small.
Yellow Springs resident Brian Springer was the first to notice the flooding to Main Hall on Saturday.
"I was walking my dog and noticed that the walls looked very wet and I looked in the window and saw, although it was nice and warm outside, it was raining inside the building and water was splashing everywhere and pooling," says Springer.
Springer then called the Miami Township Fire and Rescue department, who determined that it was a broken pipe from the attic and water had been flowing throughout the building.
