AMES, Iowa--Since 1955, the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has annually bestowed upon a graduate, supporter or contributor whose accomplishments and loyalty have earned the special distinction of “Cy’s Favorite Alum”.  This year, Iowa State Athletics presents this award to Bill and Judy Hoefle of Ames.  


Long-time supporters of Iowa State athletics, the Hoefles affinity for the Cyclones began when Bill arrived on campus in 1960. While a student at Iowa State Bill was a member of the baseball team, was a student representative on the ISU Athletics Council, and was selected for Cardinal Key. He graduated from the ISU College of Veterinary Medicine in 1966 receiving his DVM degree and received a MS degree from ISU in 1974.


Bill, a small animal orthopedic surgeon, has been a faculty member at the small animal teaching hospital in ISU’s College of Veterinary Medicine since 1970. Judy is a registered nurse and received her training from the Jefferson Medical College nursing program in Philadelphia.


Bill & Judy have been loyal season ticket holders of ISU football and men’s basketball for 38 years and women’s basketball for the past several years.  They are also members of the National Cyclone Club, the annual-giving program for Iowa State Athletics. Bill has served as a faculty representative to the ISU Athletics Council, served two terms on the Ames/Story County Cyclone Club Board of Directors and currently serves on the National Cyclone Club Advisory Board. 

In addition to their support for athletics, Bill and Judy also take extreme pride in the university and their community. Judy has served as an advisor for the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association Auxiliary. They are members of the Order of the Knoll and Bill was recently selected to the Board of Governors of the ISU Foundation. He was a long-time member of the ISU Alumni Association Board of Directors and served as president of the Iowa Veterinary Medical Association. Both are active in the community including serving on boards in their church.


The Hoefles are the parents of Bill, Jr. and (Mary) Hoefle; Paige and (Rob) Lynch and the grandparents of Abby and Nate Hoefle and Sydney and Ryan Lynch.


Congratulations to Bill and Judy Hoefle, 2007 “Cy’s Favorite Alum” award recipients!
