Mr. Williams is the son of a Detective in Pennsylvania. Being the son of a detective has instilled in Mr. Williams the importance of right and wrong. “As I got older and the world started to become gray [but with my father’s morals as an officer] it became easier for me to decide what was right and wrong,” explained Kevin. Mr. Williams anticipates attending the University of Pittsburgh in as a biology major with future plans to contribute to biomedical research studies.
Mr. Williams has several extracurricular actives including honor society, volunteering at the local nursing home, and being a part of the highly respected STEMPrep program which is a 10-year program that sets to train young scientists of under-represented minorities for careers in health related sciences. A letter of recommendation submitted on his behalf spoke highly of Kevin’s dedication and commitment to his excellence in this program. However, Mr. Williams says he owes his focus and achievements to football. “Football has not only been my passion, it has also been my stress reliever. It has also contributed to my academic success, through my understanding of discipline and worth ethic,” shared Kevin.
Wives Behind the Badge wishes to extend the most sincere thanks to all of those who submitted applications and to the review committee for their countless hours of sorting through applications. We wish a lifetime of prosperity as all students embarking on their journey furthering their education to make an impact on the world. Thank you to Lieutenant Faulis and Detective Williams for your service and congratulations Ms. Faulis and Mr. Williams on your bright futures and much luck with all of your successes.
