SPIRIT 105.9 is proud to be a part of an amazing Central Texas community filled with people who sacrifice so much for others. That’s why we are kicking off our local Difference Maker promotion with an University of Texas Police Officer that has made a big impact in Austin. Introducing our very first Difference Maker, Police Officer William Robert Pieper.
Officer Pieper has been with the University of Texas at Austin Police Department for more than 20 years. He is a dedicated and hardworking man who gives close to 300 security presentations a semester to UT students, staff and faculty on personal safety and alcohol awareness. It is Officer Pieper’s personal mission to make sure every person who steps on to the UT campus is filled with the knowledge needed to stay safe and make good decisions.
As you can imagine, Officer Pieper has taken the recent tragic event with the death of Haruka Weiser to heart. This has only fueled his passion to reach more students and broaden efforts to keep the Texas Longhorns safe and well educated.
Outside of his job, Officer Pieper enjoys photography. He has given his personal time to photograph several of his fellow co-worker’s weddings, retirements and more. A lot of his work is donated.
Officer Pieper has a great love for our country and for our Lord and Savior. Today, we want to honor him for all he has done for our community. Join us in congratulating Officer Pieper in the comments section. Thank you to his partner, Layne Brewster, who nominated him.
