According to Audley Hewett, Wilbert is a quiet and fantastic member of the chapter whose hard work and efforts on behalf of the chapter have not gone unnoticed. "He offers suggestions and is always looking out for opportunities that will benefit KC. In addition, Will does a lot of work behind the scenes, for example with the soccer program. We know we can always count on his support for any project."

His memory of KC includes Mr. Watson, Art teacher, whom he saw at the Douglas Forrest building ribbon cutting ceremony. History teacher Mr. Bryant from whom he received several canings and English teacher Mr. Hayes. He considers it a great privilege to have been taught French by the late great Douglas Forrest.
