Earlier this week, attorney and Baylor University alumnus John Eddie Williams, Jr., was honored with a bronze bust placed at the south end zone of Baylor’s McLane Stadium. Williams attended Baylor on a football scholarship as an undergraduate, and has since generously donated to the school’s athletics program. Thanks to his donations, the field at McLane Stadium bears the name John Eddie Williams Field.
After finishing his undergraduate degree, Williams continued his education at Baylor Law School, to which he has also generously donated. At the bust unveiling, Williams stated “Other people’s generosities in the past allowed me to come here and so I always have thought that the right thing for me to do is to give back.”
