Jim & Ruth Williams Memorial Scholarship
The Jim Williams Scholarship memorializes the former three-sport athlete who graduated from Northwest in 1970. Williams enjoyed a successful career as a high school teacher and football coach at St. Charles High School where he guided his team to a state championship in 1982 and was voted Missouri 4A Football Coach of the Year. In his 17 years of coaching, Williams fell one win short of 100 in his career, finishing with the most wins in St. Charles history. During his tenure, he touched many lives, which was evident by the hundreds of people who attended his memorial service and wrote messages thanking him for being a great friend and teacher. While at Northwest, Williams was a three-sport letter-winner in football, wrestling, and golf. In 2007, Williams became the first recipient of the Bob Gregory Award, an honor given to someone who emulated the life, qualities and attributes of Gregory, a beloved former Northwest coach.
