Kendell Williams, Advertising

Kendell Williams, a fourth-year student-athlete, has found success on and off the field of competition. As a track and field athlete, Williams has earned multiple individual NCAA Championships, was named a First-Team All-American, and holds collegiate records in the pentathlon. She also qualified to compete in the 2016 summer Olympic Games.

In addition, Williams is an outstanding student majoring in advertising. She was named an Academic All-American and was selected as a member of the UGA Athletic Association’s Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) program, which promotes leadership development among the University’s most promising student-athletes. She also was selected to serve as a student-athlete representative on the UGA Athletic Board of Directors for 2016-2017. Upon graduation, Williams plans to pursue a master’s degree at UGA and forge a dual career in professional track and field and advertising.

I would like to thank the University and its donors for providing me with the opportunity to get a great education and pursue my athletic goals. The faculty, facilities, and the academic support are first class, providing a learning experience that has been amazing. This is possible thanks to the help of private donors, some of whom I’ve had a chance to meet.”
