TWU Alumna Kathy Williams To Visit Pioneer School

3/26/04


DENTON — A Texas Woman’s University alumna will return to the Denton campus on April 13 for storytime with students of the university’s Pioneer School.

Kathy Williams, vice president and news director for KRIV-FOX 26 in Houston, will read “Everybody has a Daddy,” the first in a series of books designed to build self-esteem in children growing up in households headed by single mothers. Williams, who co-wrote the book with her sister, Vicki, will give copies of the book to the 48 children living in Mary Hufford Hall, a family housing residence hall on TWU’s Denton campus. The sisters also are working with the Red Cross to donate the books to children whose fathers were killed in Iraq.

The series will be released through Self-Esteem Adventures.

Williams will read to the children at 10 a.m. in the Pioneer School’s Rainbow Room. The school is located at 1900 Cherrywood Drive, north of the TWU golf course. Williams will sign copies of the book from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the TWU Bookstore, located in the Student Center at Bell Avenue and Administration Drive.

Williams earned her bachelor of science degree from TWU in 1981. She got her first full-time television news job as a junior at TWU when she served as the weekend anchor and reporter throughout her summer internship at KTBC in Austin.

Working her way from news anchor to management-level positions at various news stations, Williams earned two Emmy Awards while leading two different newsrooms in Cleveland before returning to Texas.

Williams serves on the TWU Foundation Board and the Association for the Advancement of Mexican Americans board of directors.
