About our Staff
The staff at Lee Williams High School is highly committed to our students. Every teacher strives to assist all students in achieving their goals. Our staff members demonstrate an interest in developing well rounded students by coaching athletics, tutoring students, or sponsoring extracurricular activities. The LWHS staff also recognizes the need for ongoing professional development focused on a student centered program of instruction. Late start Wednesday collaboration time is used by staff to review the Beyond Textbooks curriculum maps and formative assessments. Data is used to plan re-teach and enrichment activities to enhance student learning and growth.
While Lee Williams is one of the newest schools in the district, having opened in 2012, the history behind the school dates back to 1973.
Richard Lee Williams, principal of Kingman High School and volunteer firefighter at the time, and 10 of his fellow firefighters, died in the line of duty on July 5, 1973, when the inflamed Doxol propane tanker exploded. They left behind families, friends, and an lasting impression on the hearts of the entire community.
The school is located in the refurbished and renovated high school building on Grandview Avenue.
While the school is only in its seventh year, the history behind the school’s namesake is based on a tradition of pride and extraordinary service. At LWHS the students and staff are proud to call themselves “Volunteers” in honor of volunteer firefighters who responded to the scene of a derailed propane tanker in 1973.
