AgFirst’s Stacy Williams receives Equity Leadership Honor Roll Award from Columbia Urban League
AgFirst Corporate Attorney Stacy Williams received the Equity Leadership Honor Roll Award from the Columbia Urban League, which recognizes individuals, groups and organizations who promote minority business development. In addition, AgFirst donated $25,000 to support the organization’s mission of providing economic empowerment and educational opportunities for those in need.
For more than a decade, Williams has announced and supported the recipients of the Columbia Urban League’s annual Young and Gifted program, which celebrates the achievements of Black high school seniors who have excelled in academics, the arts, leadership, technology and athletics. The program is held every February to commemorate Black History Month and recognize the next generation of leaders.
“I am a strong supporter of encouraging our youth,” Williams said. “I know how important it is to recognize and give credit to youth that are doing good things in the community – and who are also bettering themselves. It’s inspirational to be around these students who have bright futures ahead of them.”
AgFirst is proud of Williams’ ongoing support of the Columbia Urban League through her volunteer efforts to recognize talented Black students in South Carolina. As one of our community partners, AgFirst financially supports the Columbia Urban League every year to improve our community in the areas of education, economic empowerment, health, civic engagement and racial inclusion.
“The Urban League provides so many opportunities for those in our community,” Williams said. “I’m very proud to be part of an organization that selflessly gives to support the mission of the Columbia Urban League.”
