Lew Williams Center for Early Learning set to open Aug. 18

JOHN PENDYGRAFT | Times

Mrs. Arthurene Williams, widow of Lew Williams, is ebullient at the ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday at the new Lew Williams Center for Early Learning at the Pinellas Technical Education Centers' South Campus in St. Petersburg. The center's eight classrooms are designed to provide high-quality early childhood education to low-income children, ages 1 to 4. It is named in honor of the late Pinellas County School Board member Lew Williams, who was a staunch advocate for early childhood education. He spent four decades in education and died unexpectedly in December 2011, while still serving on the board. The center, at 901 34th St. S, is set to open Aug. 18.
