Aaron Williams stepped up as a community volunteer to personally design, implement, and sponsor solutions to numerous problems in the St. Louis Public Schools. With no children of his own, Williams often donated hundreds of hours of his time to ensure the completion of a single initiative to help the students.
Williams' two "Celebrity Reading Days" turned out to be the largest events of their kind in the nation. Through his efforts, established members of the St. Louis community spent a day reading books in each of the district's 95 schools, teaching students the importance and fun of reading.
Williams sponsored many contests that increased student and community collaborations. Principals competed for pairs of airline tickets by improving and maintaining attendance during MAPS testing. Third graders wrote and illustrated children's books for numerous prizes. The fifth grader who wrote the best essay on Lewis and Clark was featured on a KMOV-TV segment. Winning seventh grade poets read their poetry before proud parents and mentors at Duff's in the Central West End while being filmed for the St. Louis Public School cable channel.
Many community members and parents might be most familiar with the SLU Fifty Nifty Program, which Williams coordinated. The program provided all middle schools in the district with tickets to a Billikens basketball game and transportation to the Savvis Center. The top 50 eighth grade students from each school, their parents, and school personnel all watched the power of teamwork while attending a college basketball game dedicated to them.
Throughout all of these efforts, Williams remained behind the scenes, consistently putting the positive media and community attention on the students and schools that he has helped.
