A WestStar graduate of 2006, Mayor Willie Spencer of Hardeman County, is our Fall 2012 leader in the spotlight. Mayor Spencer was born and raised in Hardeman county and graduated from Allen-White High School in Whiteville, Tennessee. He attended Lane College from 1967-1971 and graduated with a bachelor's of science in education.
After graduating from Lane, he was employed at Procter and Gamble Manufacturing Company in Jackson, Tennessee where he served in many leadership capacities, including electrical technician, team manager, technical manager, department manager, and personnel organization effectiveness manager.
After 27 years with Proctor and Gamble, he started his own company, Bond and Spencer Contracting, and began private consulting with Procter and Gamble and Manpower West Tennessee. While in Madison County, he served on various non-profit boards and committees.
In 2001, Willie moved back to Hardeman County and in 2002 he was elected to the County Commission. During his term as commissioner, he served as vice chair of the commission and mayor protempore in the absence of County Mayor Don Clifft.
In 2006, Willie was elected as the Hardeman County Mayor and he serves on many boards and committees in the county. Spencer has been married to his wife Dixie for 35 years and they have four children and nine grandchildren. We appreciate all Mayor Spencer has accomplished for Hardeman County and West Tennessee.
