William Foreman

Background

Bill Foreman has been active in education for over 40 years as a teacher, school administrator, consultant, and supervisor of student teachers. He earned his undergraduate degree at Shippensburg University and a Master's degree in Educational Administration at Penn State, then began his career as a fourth- and sixth-grade teacher at the recently demolished Keefauver School on Lefever Street before moving on to become a fourth grade teacher and principal of the Meade School (now the Federal Pointe Inn), which sits between Springs Avenue, Buford Avenue, and Chambersburg Street in Gettysburg. Foreman left the Meade School in 1969 to become principal of Lincoln Elementary, a position he held for 27 years. He has been with Gettysburg College since 1996.

If you visit Lincoln Elementary to participate in an afterschool program or to do field work you may notice a picnic pavilion on the school grounds, which was erected by the Gettysburg Area School District (GASD) to commemorate 25 years of service given by Foreman and his secretary to GASD. The Parent Teacher Organization also established a scholarship in Foreman's honor, which has been given annually to a graduating senior at Gettysburg High School since 1990. He knows more corny jokes than you will ever want to hear.
