Bill Weatherby has been a member of the Tacoma Basketball Board since 1989 and a Washington Officials Association member since 1980. Weatherby has worked four state tournaments (1997 AAA, 2000 B and 2003, 2010 1A). He held executive leadership positions with the TBB from 1999-2003 and was a member of the John Webster Memorial Scholarship Selection Committee for three years. The 1969 Lincoln High graduate began officiating basketball 32 years ago after participating for several years in the men's industrial basketball leagues. He quickly learned officiating wasn’t an easy job but he stuck with it, committing to improve his skills over three decades. He now serves as a mentor to train new officials in the TBB apprentice program and handles conflicts as a member of the TBB Grievance Committee. In 2010, Weatherby was honored with the Meritorious Service Award by the Washington State Officials Association.
