GEORGE MAGNER AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE
IN UNDERGRADUATE ADVISING
HELPS STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS
This year, UH has once again recognized his commitment, honoring
him with the George Magner Award for Excellence in Undergraduate
Advising. This is the second time Williams, director of undergraduate
affairs and academic advising and visiting assistant professor of
biology and biochemistry, received the award — the first time
was in 1997.
One alumnus, who immigrated to the United States in 2000 at the
age of 17, wrote in a letter of support how Williams assisted him
in applying for graduate fellowships.

“The result was a dream that came true for me. This dream
is a string of national awards that included a quarter-million dollar
medical school scholarship and a one-year research fellowship at
the National Institutes of Health,” the alumnus wrote.
