Alfred Williams, a graduate of Little Rock University, was honored Friday, May 10, with the UALR President’s Award, an honor bestowed to individuals with career success and a profound dedication to the university.
Alfred received a bachelor of arts from Little Rock University in 1966. During his time at UALR, he was a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity. Since his graduation, Alfred has continued to support UALR throughout his career. His father, Granger Williams, was also an avid supporter of UALR and left behind a legacy of civic duty that Alfred has continued.
Among Alfred’s plethora of contributions to the university, he established two scholarships on campus: the Elaine Eubank Scholarship, in honor of his wife, and the E. Grainger and Frances Williams Scholarship, in honor of his parents. His wife, Elaine, established the Alfred Williams Scholarship in honor of him. Alfred has been a diligent supporter of the College of Business, the Department of Athletics, and many other divisions of the university. Also, he served as president of the Alumni Board for two years.
We are honored to have Alfred as a member of UALR’s Alumni and eager to recognize his outstanding career and loyalty to the university.
