On Friday, August 10, 2018, Trustee Williams delivered the welcoming address during Opening Day at San Bernardino Valley College #sbvc
Trustee Williams spoke about his recent experience on the Underground Railroad Tour where he spent eight days traveling through Ohio, Kentucky, Detroit, Canada and New York the very path thousands of freedom-seekers traveled to make their way out of enslavement to freedom.
Williams also shared his desire to help the San Bernardino Community College District raise $470 million to construct new facilities and improve existing ones for students and faculty. Williams stated he was most excited about the opportunity to bring a state of the art Career and Technical Education facility to the region. The SBCCD Board of Trustees recently unanimously decided to ask voters to pass a bond measure to support new construction and facility upgrades at both campuses within the District.
