Keith Bailey, a 1964 mechanical engineering graduate, transformed a company and then transformed S&T athletics. He joined Williams Co. in 1973 and became chair of the board in 1994, when the company’s assets were $5 billion. Upon his retirement in 2002, the company’s assets totaled $38 billion. Bailey played varsity football and basketball for the Miners and is a member of Missouri S&T’s Athletic Hall of Fame. Bailey and his wife helped support the renovations of Missouri S&T’s football stadium (now Allgood-Bailey Stadium) and provided funding for S&T’s new indoor practice facility, known as the Miner Dome.
