InfoBill Flores was born at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming, while his father was serving in the military. Following his father’s service, the family moved back to Stratford, Texas, located in the Panhandle – nine generations of Bill’s family have called Texas their home.

As the oldest of six children in a family of modest means, Bill quickly learned the value of hard work, a job well done, and saving for the future. At the age of nine, in order to help his father support their family, he began helping his father work cattle for other ranchers in the area as well as for the herd that his father was starting to build. Despite the hardships, Bill’s family never asked for or sought government assistance. It taught Bill an early lesson that personal responsibility and making your own way are important aspects of our American spirit.

Whether it was helping his father, delivering newspapers, participating in 4-H activities, Boy Scouts, or doing his schoolwork, Bill was always busy. He met Gina during high school and she still fondly remembers him as one of the most driven and hard-working, young men she had ever known.


Bill’s hard work, determination, and prudent saving paid off and allowed him the opportunity to enroll at Texas A&M University in College Station, where he became a member of the Corps of Cadets. He would later go on to serve as a Ross Volunteer, MSC vice president, and the vice president of finance for the student body. Bill earned a BBA in Accounting and, a few years later, went on to Houston Baptist University where he earned an MBA.

His college education at A&M would prove to be one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences he had as a young man. These experiences instilled in him a desire to help others fulfill their aspirations for higher education and experience the character-building atmosphere of Texas A&M.

Following his graduation, Bill married Gina, the girl he pursued in high school. They have been married for thirty-one years and are the proud parents of two adult sons, Will and John.
