Westlake High senior Anna Williams receives Jeffery Owen Marriott Memorial Scholarship
Westlake High School 2022 senior, Anna Williams, is the recipient of The Jeffery Owen Marriott Memorial Scholarship. This is the seventh year the scholarship has been awarded to a Westlake High School varsity student athlete who demonstrates strong academics, outstanding character and a commitment to community service, similar to Marriott – a 1992 Westlake grad.
Williams was ranked in the top five of her 2022 WHS graduating class while maintaining a year-round athletic schedule on Westlake's varsity soccer, basketball and track teams. Academically, Williams excelled in the classroom, acing nine AP-level courses over her high school career. She was equally impressive on the athletic field and court racking up nine varsity letters in addition to being a second-team Great Lakes Conference (GLC) member, Academic All-Ohio, and GLC Scholar Athlete in soccer.
She also earned GLC First Team in basketball as well as GLC and Team Defensive Player of the Year accolades, Northeast Lake All-District Honorable Mention, and GLC Scholar Athlete awards in basketball. Williams was also involved with several extra-curricular activities including Youth Challenge, Cancer Kids First and Westlake Youth Advisory Board, further exemplifying her commitment to serving in the local community.
"Anna was selected among a pool of shining Westlake senior applicants," said Elise Orr, a friend and board member of the Jeffery Owen Marriott Memorial Scholarship. "What set Anna apart from the other candidates, however, is her positive outlook and compassionate nature. Above all, we agreed Anna mirrored Jeff’s kind, caring and friendly nature.”
Williams will attend The University of Wisconsin in the fall where she will focus her pre-med studies on both Biology and Mathematics.
