BRADENTON – The Manatee Seminole Club has announced their continuing scholarship will be named in honor of the late Todd Williams. Todd, an offensive lineman for the 1999 National Championship and a NFL star, had dedicated his life to children and teenagers in Manatee County. The Bradenton native was quoted in 2002 saying, “Kids need to know the value of an education before anything.”

 

Surviving homelessness, Todd went on to earn both a criminology and sociology degree in his four years at Florida State University. Manatee Seminole Club Endowed Scholarship Director Brett Pollock said, “If there is one person who wanted to change the lives of youth in Manatee County and encouraged each of them to earn an education, it would be Todd.” Pollock added, “We are proud to name this scholarship in his honor.”

 

A tax deductible contribution can be made to the FSU Foundation, “Todd Williams Continuing Scholarship (F06901)” and mailed to P.O. Box 831, Bradenton, FL 34206-0831.
