Dimon A. Williams was a beloved daughter who was taken from this world far too soon, leaving a hole in her family and community. Dimon was intelligent, hardworking, loving, motivated young lady. Everything she reached for, she achieved.

Dimon was tragically killed one night on her way home from work. She was only eighteen years old and had just graduated high school a month before her untimely passing. Dimon was preparing to attend college to study dentistry in the fall and had overcome many obstacles in order to do so, such as growing up in a single-parent home. Dimon also had plans to enroll in aviation classes in order to become an airline pilot.

This scholarship aims to honor the memory of Dimon A. Williams by supporting students from single-parent families who are pursuing higher education.

Any high school or undergraduate student who has at least a 3.0 GPA and is from a single-parent household may apply for this scholarship if they have volunteering experience and plan to pursue at least a bachelor’s degree.
