Bill Troescher

If you already know who SPS adjunct faculty member Bill Troescher is, ask him to show you his cell phone the next time you see him on campus. No bells and whistles, no apps, no LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, email, or thousands of connections available at the touch of a fingerprint and a swipe of a screen – Bill will proudly show you his still-working (vintage?) flip phone.
