Hello LWHS Volunteer Families,
I am so excited to welcome all of you to Lee Williams High School. LWHS boasts a tradition of excellence based on history and legacy. Our goal for this year is to build on the current traditions while establishing new traditions that support every student on a path toward success.
While our school is young, the history behind the school’s namesake is based on a tradition of extraordinary service. We at LWHS are proud to call ourselves “Volunteers” in honor of volunteer firefighters who responded to the scene of a derailed propane tanker in 1973. Richard Lee Williams, principal of Kingman High School and volunteer firefighter at the time, and nine of his fellow firefighters, 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.
At Lee Williams, we welcome all students and strive to provide opportunities that match the unique goals and needs of our students. With this in mind, LWHS is proud to offer Cambridge Preparatory Academy Classes, dual enrollment courses, traditional math, science, ELA and social studies classes, along with a wide variety of Career and Technical Education and elective courses.
Participation in extracurricular activities, including sports and clubs, is an integral part of the high school experience and provides students with a chance to grow as scholars and people. Our student clubs and organizations, performing arts groups, and athletic teams offer students the chance to be part of something positive and rewarding, while they pursue their interests. Being a Volunteer is a chance to be a part of something.
