Bill Cocreham – 2011 Peoples Health Champion


Announcer: Saints fans please turn your
attention to the big screens to honor today’s Peoples Health Champion
Bill Cocreham. Bill Cocreham: I’m 85 years old and
being involved with BREC has been a great part of my life. Donna Klein: On July 24, 2003, at the age
of 77, Bill Cocreham successfully negotiated the donation of the old Sears
building to the Baton Rouge Recreational Parks Commission. Bill’s accomplishments on behalf of BREC
are many and various. He has also been instrumental in the development of the
Santa Maria Golf Course. He has worked and developed donations of a building
and property that now houses Highland Road Observatory that BREC, in
conjunction with LSU, developed into a first class operation. It takes a special person who has
compassion and who has zeal and wants to better the community to devote the
kind of energy that Bill has devoted to BREC. His recommendation is get
involved, stay involved, and you’ll live longer. Bill Cocreham: I always say “never retire,”
because it adds to your longevity. Donna Klein: Congratulations, Bill. I am
ready for your next project.
