David V. Williams Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship is given in memory of David Williams, who was a father of St. Ursula School students, Ryan (2011) and Jarod (2012). When the Williams family lost their husband and father to cancer in 2008, the Saint Ursula School community wrapped its arms around them with such love and support that they wanted to give something back and honor David’s name in the process. David was a scientist and a very talented artist. He was best known for his unmatched sense of humor and being a great dad.
