Harry Williams Begins Tenure as Leader of Thurgood Marshall College Fund

Dr. Harry L. Williams officially began his tenure as president and CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) on Tuesday, following an extensive search of more than 200 candidates.

News of his selection first came when TMCF founder Dr. N. Joyce Payne made the announcement during the fund’s 30th anniversary awards gala.

Williams assumes the position formerly held by Johnny C. Taylor Jr.

The former president of Delaware State University recently garnered accolades including being cited as one of the Top 10 Most Influential HBCU Presidents in 2017 by HBCU Digest and receiving the Education Leadership Award from TMCF at their annual gala last year.

“This is truly a game-changing career opportunity for me, but, more importantly, it is a unique moment for the Black college community,” said Williams, who holds three degrees from Appalachian State and East Tennessee State universities. “I am ready to work with the entire TMCF team and I know our future as an organization has never been brighter.”
