Joan M. Williams graduated from McCaskey High School in 1972. She subsequently taught history and world cultures at Wheatland Junior High School. A lifelong sufferer of rheumatoid arthritis, Joan always empathized with and championed “the underdog.” The Joan Williams History Scholarship was established in her honor.
Each year the Joan Williams Scholarship awards $2,200 to a student who attended Wheatland Middle School, excelled in Social Studies, has a good sense of humor, and is a good citizen. No essay is required.
