The University of Missouri Board of Curators has established a scholarship in memory of a recent law school graduate who was killed by a drunken driver in June.
Remington R. Williams had served as student representative to the Board of Curators since 2020. He was a recent graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law and was attending the University of Missouri-St. Louis in pursuit of a Master of Business Administration degree, which was granted posthumously after his death.
The Remington R. Williams Award will be presented to six students each year — one each from UMKC, UMSL and the Missouri University of Science and Technology, and three from the University of Missouri in Columbia. Award winners will each receive $1,000 and a medal to wear during their commencement ceremony.
“This award will honor Remington’s legacy of leadership and engagement,” said Darryl Chatman, UM Board of Curators chair. “Remington represented the best of us, and he truly embodied the spirit of excellence and service the University of Missouri encourages among not only its students, but our faculty and staff as well.”
