Colleton County Councilmember Art Williams has been selected by the South Carolina State University National Alumni Association’s 12 Stellar Alumni for 2020. Each of the alumni will appear in the alumni association’s 2020 Stellar Alumni calendar.
Williams said he was “pleasantly surprised” when his selection was announced in July. “I’m appreciative of being chosen.
“I sacrifice and support the programs I do at SCSU because someone had to make similar sacrifices in order for me to receive the education I earned from SCSU. I am proud to be a SCSU Bulldog,” Williams said.
The calendar page for September will contain his photograph and a writeup of his accomplishments in government. “I would have loved to be in July,” he joked. “I’m a Leo.”
The unveiling of the annual calendar honorees was conducted during a special ceremony on Oct. 18 as part of South Carolina State’s Homecoming festivities.
The alumni association has issued its Stellar Alumni calendar since 2006, recognizing their achievements in athletics, business, community service, education government, medicine, religion and the arts.
