Former Leatherneck named a U.S. Marshal

It’s one thing for the president of your company to give you a nod. But it’s another when it’s the president of the United States of America!

William C. Sibert, who graduated from Western in 1983, was one of three men nominated by President Obama on July 21 to become a white-house-sealU.S. Marshal.

According to a news release from White House’s Office of the Press Secretary, Sibert, a detective with the Warrant/Fugitive Division of the St. Louis (MO) Police Department, is now a nominee for United States Marshal for the Eastern District of Missouri.

“Throughout their careers these individuals have shown a deep commitment to public service,” said President Obama. “I appreciate their continued willingness to serve and protect the American people.”

When he was a student at Western, Sibert earned a B.A. in sociology and was a member of the Leatherneck football team from 1976-1978. For more about the nomination, and Sibert’s career in law enforcement since his graduation from Western, read the full announcement here.
