The sons and daughters of “Fair Dillard” are extraordinary people. One such example is embodied in Ms. Rachel Williams a 2014 UNCF Rising Star
Rachel is a graduate of Dillard University with a degree in Psychology. She served as president of the Student Government Association and was the student representative for the University Presidential Search Committee and tutor for a pre-collegiate program. Upon completion of her Walton Fellowship, Rachel returned to Dillard intent on establishing an organization to address education reform, working with other school organizations to increase reform awareness. She intends to continue this work with other 2013 Walton Fellows to expand the chapter. Rachel was accepted to Vanderbilt University’s Education Policy program and is featured in UNCF’s Better Futures PSA campaign. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
