1996 Bluecoats Hall of Fame Member
Bill Tietjen served many key roles within the Bluecoats organization in the 1980’s and 1990’s. While he drove both bus and truck, served as a board member (including a term as President), he’s perhaps best remembered as the corps media manager during that time. He launched the Bluecoats annual yearbook video project, took many outstanding candid and on-field photos, and handled public relations duties in his time with the organization.
In addition, his younger son Michael often traveled with the corps as volunteer and his wife Marilyn, became of the Bluecoats’ regular bus drivers.
Individuals previously inducted into the Bluecoats Hall of Fame have had deep ties to the corps by residency in the Canton, Ohio area, but Bill Tietjen’s commitment to the organization and it’s mission has endured even as he’s made his home in Cleveland, Ohio, Washington, DC and now Philadelphia, PA.
