The Nettie Lokey Wiley and Charles L. Wiley Foundation recently welcomed Phillip L. Williams to the board. Williams joins board members Gloria C. Conley, Catharine B. Moore, B.H.B Hubbard III, Thomas A. Gosse, and board president Leslie A. Franklin.
“We are thankful for the perspective Phil brings to the table, as we continue to honor Mrs. Wiley’s legacy through work with local organizations,” said Franklin.
A native of Lancaster County, Williams earned a bachelor’s from Hampden-Sydney College, and a master’s from the University of Maryland. He is director of operations at Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury.
Williams also serves on the boards of the Lancaster by the Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Steamboat Era Museum, and the building committee of the Lancaster Community Library. He was a participant in the 2014-15 LEAD Northern Neck program and serves on the Lancaster County Emergency Planning Committee.
A past counselor and camper himself, Williams continues to spend time in the summer volunteering at Camp Wachusett in New England.
Founded in 1981, The Wiley Foundation awards grants to organizations who give young children in Lancaster the kind of inspiration and education Nettie Lokey Wiley enjoyed as a child—and that she shared with others as a teacher and a benefactor throughout her life.
