William ‘Bill’ Cooley: Systems Electro Coating

William “Bill” Cooley earned a bachelor of science in chemistry from Tuskegee Institute, a master of science degree in industrial management from the University of North Dakota, and a doctorate of business administration from Mississippi State University. He also served in the U.S. Air Force for 21 years (decorated service in Vietnam and retired as lieutenant colonel), and as dean of the business school at Jackson State University. His work as a college professor led to the creation of Systems Electro Coating in 2003, which his daughter Toni is president of. The Cooleys also own several other businesses, including Systems Consultants Associates, which offers small and women-owned business development, project and financial management, training, and a nonprofit organization working with community projects.
