Last week seventeen upper school students were inducted into the Williams Scholars
program, which recognizes students that demonstrate outstanding academic achievements
and a proven commitment to the life of the school. Established in 2006, the Williams Scholars Program is named for Jack Williams, Boys’ Latin’s headmaster from 1962-1978. The program honors Mr. Williams’ dedication to Boys’ Latin and emphasis on scholarship by recognizing BL students who have distinguished themselves through their outstanding academic achievements and commitment to the ideals of the Boys’ Latin community.
Modeled after similar programs at the collegiate level, the Williams Scholars program offers benefits and privileges to its members while preparing students for success in college. Williams Scholars enjoy access to luncheons with guest speakers and enrichment funds for summer academic programs. Each year, Williams Scholars use their funding towards a wide variety of intellectual and academic pursuits; students have attended programs in robotics, sports industry management, psychology, public speaking, and everything in between.
Founded in 1844, Boys’ Latin School of Maryland is an all-boys private school serving boys in grades K-12. World-class faculty, challenging academics, and character development remain the hallmarks of a Boys’ Latin education. The outcomes speak for themselves, Boys’ Latin graduates attend top colleges and universities and are prepared for the real world and ready to make a difference.
