Need your car jumped? Call Will Mertens. Need someone to drive you to the airport at 7:30am? Call Will Mertens. Need someone to just be there for you while you’re having a panic attack? Will Mertens will be there. The man doesn’t get enough attention for his genuine compassion and reliability.”</p><p> “Will is a wonderful person who has really supported me during my time at Beloit. He’s really down to earth and has been a role model for his friends for his ability to step outside of his comfort zone and take on new challenges and go on adventures. I have been friends with him for a few years now, and I hope that continues for a very long time!”</p><p> “Will always puts people first. He has a compassionate, humanistic view of the way people deserve to be treated and always holds himself to that standard. I have seen him consistently go to great lengths not only to help his friends, but anyone he encounters who needs help. Many at Beloit have been touched by the kindness, insight, and care that follow him. Beloit is a better place because he has been here.”</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
