Father Watson appointed to Colombia post
the Inland Register
(From the Nov. 11, 2004 edition of the Inland Register)
Jesuit Father William Watson, Gonzaga University’s first Vice President for Mission, has been appointed to a new post as assistant to the provincial for the Colombia-Oregon Mission.
The appointment came from Jesuit Father John Whitney, provincial of the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus.
Father Watson, a native of Spokane, has been at GU since June 1999.
In his new role, he will help develop and work with a task force exploring how province-wide engagement with Colombia benefits all concerned. He has been working on the initiative for the last three years.
