Larry Williams
 

Larry G. Williams has qualified to run for District 2, Dade Board of Education, in the May Republican Primary.

Williams is married to Marianna, choir director at Sand Mountain UMC, and he has one child, Amanda Hisle and two grandchildren, one of which is a student at Davis Elementary.

He is a retired educator having been an agricultural education teacher for 27 years. His education includes a BA degree in Biology/Chemistry with a minor in secondary education and MEd and EdS in Agricultural Education from The University of Georgia.

Williams has also served as pastor of Sand Mountain UMC, four churches in Sequatchie Valley and is founder/director of an international agricultural missionary organization called Agrimissions.

In the profession of education he has served on various committees both locally and for the State of Georgia. His experience in education includes teaching, curriculum development on the local, state and national levels, writing grants and advisor to local FFA chapters. Williams took his students on various outings and trips to the National FFA Convention and always encouraged them to strive to achieve on higher levels both academically and morally. He was inducted into the Georgia Agricultural Educators Hall of Fame for outstanding contribution to the profession. His teaching experience was in Biology, Physics, Mathematics and Agricultural Education.

During his tenure in education, Williams was instrumental in developing the Agriscience program for the State of Georgia and presented this program to the State Board of Education for science credit. Upon retirement form Dade County High School Williams traveled the world serving as a missionary in agriculture. He has served in over eight countries as well as the USA. His recent project included development of a training curriculum for churches and religious organization to become involved in urban/community gardening for outreach and evangelism.

Williams stated, “My priority as an educator has always been on the student and their total development of character as well as education. I am a firm believer in the students potential to become more than they think they are capable of. The heart of the profession lies within a teacher that is also empowered to try innovative ideas and teaching strategies. All students should be treated with respect and dignity and teachers should be empowered to help them reach their maximum potential. If elected I will work for our students and teachers to become empowered for the future of our children.”

I encourage my students and friends to assist me in this campaign by asking your neighbors to vote for me in the May Republican primary. I may be reached at: lgwilliams1947@gmail.com or (423) 240-2089 if you desire to assist in this campaign.
