About the Provider

Description: Williams Memorial, located in St. George, was started after the Civil War as an elementary school for African-American children. In 1922 the first principal of Williams Memorial was the Reverend S.D. Williams and the school included students in grades one through seven. By 1927 the school included grades one through seven and as education was rapidly changing, so was Williams Memorial. In 1942 the school held grades one through twelve and it was renamed Williams Memorial School in the memory of its first principal.
In 1954 the current building was built on nine acres of land. Williams Memorial offered its students academics and extra-curricular activities. In 1970 the school was integrated and included grades four through nine. The faculty and staff worked tirelessly to give the students an education and life lessons that would help them through the ever-changing world.
By 1993 the school was renovated and in 1994 it was renamed Williams Memorial Middle School and reorganized to include grades five through eight. Due to changing state regulations, the middle school was changed to accommodate grades six through eight and later the district reorganized the school, moving St. George Elementary into Williams Memorial Middle. This formed our current Williams Memorial Elementary School which serves Pre-K through fifth grades.
