William BillTorres joined Northern Marianas College (NMC) in August 2019, during a pivotal time in the institutions history. Just 10 months prior, the College was devastated by Super Typhoon Yutu, a Category 5 storm that destroyed nearly 80% of Saipans campus and its facilities. The NMC was able to subsequently resume classes in only four months in temporary pods, thanks to FEMA, the Army Corps, and the Office of Insular Affairs. However, its leadership was determined to rebuild a brand-new, hardened campus. Mr. Torres was recruited to join the team as the Grants Coordinator, aimed at the principal task of securing the needed federal grant funds to construct resilient buildings and classrooms. Through his coordination, NMC acquired close to $100M in grant assistance to build a campus that a community recovering from a disaster could be proud of.  Aside from the day-to-day duties of managing these grants, Mr. Torres is also highly involved in a spectrum of planning activities related to construction alongside NMCs Facilities Department and the Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) Director.  

Mr. Torres holds a Bachelor’s degree in Historical & Political Studies from Chaminade University.
