HISTORY OF LEE WILLIAMS HIGH SCHOOL
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Lee Williams High School the website. While the school is only in its third year, the history behind the school’s namesake is based on a tradition of pride and extraordinary service. We at LWHS are proud to call ourselves “Volunteers” in honor of volunteer fire fighters who responded to the scene of a derailed propane tanker in 1973. Richard Lee Williams, principal of Kingman High School and volunteer fire fighter at the time, and nine of his fellow fire fighters, died in the line of duty on July 5th, 1973, when the inflamed Doxol propane tanker exploded. They left behind families, friends, and an indelible mark on the hearts of the entire community. We honor their memories by taking pride in our school and making every effort to continue their legacy and to be our best selves each and every day.
