I have witnessed President Williams's actions. In his first few days he traveled to meet each of the Nashville college presidents, the Fisk Board of Trustees, Mayor Dean, Governor Haslam and other dignitaries. He has met with staff, faculty and his senior leadership team often. Transparency is evident. He eats breakfast in the cafeteria with the students. The students have connected with him quickly. He listens and implements their ideas that might improve the campus. He is the first one at work and the last to leave. Yes, he cut my pay, but he cut his more severe than anyone else's. He travels throughout the nation to meet with Fisk alumni and friends of Fisk. He always comes back with major gifts to the University. President Williams is serious about the business of getting Fisk University on a solid and successful path. For those who have stopped giving to Fisk in recent years, many of us understand why. However, I am confident that each person, corporation, foundation and otherwise will once again invest in the lives of the students who reside at 1000 17th Avenue North, Nashville.
