The Class of 2013 has been at Elon University for four years. Bill Morningstar’s time at the school, both as a student and athletic coach, nearly multiplies that number by 11. To put in perspective how long Morningstar has been a part of the Elon landscape, he arrived on the campus of what was then Elon College in 1960, three years after Earl Danieley assumed the president’s office. While Morningstar graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1964, graduation day for the Class of 2013 will mark another graduation in its own right for the 41-year coach. Officially announcing his retirement from the men’s golf program in December, Morningstar leaves a legacy decorated with more than just accolades and records on the links. Elon College — round No.
