COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - University of Colorado Colorado Springs supporter Glenn Williams aims to level the playing field with several gifts he has made toward UCCS women’s athletics these past five yearsâ€"including an endowed scholarship for women athletes.
And now, with a gift of a 12-foot-high sculpture that will grace the Four Diamonds Complex on North Nevada Avenue, Williams’s legacy will be evident not only to his scholarship recipients, but to thousands who use these athletic fields each year.
Williams commissioned Loveland sculptor Denny Haskew and the National Sculptors’ Guild to produce this $155,000 bronze sculpture, which will feature a woman shortstop modeled on a former UCCS player.
Williams has similarly donated athletic sculpture to schools such as Eastern Illinois Universityâ€"where he spent his career as a high-ranking academic administrator.
The Glenn D. and Joan R. Williams Endowment for Women’s Athletics, established in 2007, has already supported UCCS women student/athletes in softball, basketball, and volleyball; he has endowed another fund to support the softball coach position.
“Glenn Williams is a special friend of the university and our women’s athletic program,†Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak said. “We are deeply appreciative of his continued support.â€
His gifts to UCCS are all the more remarkable given that his association with the university began in 1993 when he attended his first UCCS softball game. In 2005, he met softball coach Scott Peterson while attending a UCCS playoff game, and became an enthusiastic supporter thereafter.
Williams credits Shockley-Zalabak’s performance as chancellor as another primary reason for his support of UCCS: “She has done everything right, and I know what it looks like on that side of the desk having been a college administrator,†Williams says.
Williams feels strongly about supporting women’s sports at UCCS. “The least amount of scholarship money is awarded to softballâ€"every other sport gets more than we do.

In the past several months, we experienced a number of legal and legislative challenges in a number of states.We were lucky enough to dodge the bullet through the efforts of some great people who stepped forward to volunteer their time and effort to preserve this lifestyle we all enjoy.

worked with Williams for many years and asked his mentor to participate in Hencken's first commencement as interim president. "Dr. Williams had a significant impact on my professional career at
Williams, who retired from Eastern in 1992, served as the keynote speaker seven years ago when the university celebrated its centennial.In conjunction with that honor, he was named one of EIU's Centennial 100 - an elite group of persons chosen as those most influential to the institution's growth and reputation during its first 100 years.
If his energy and the dedication he's shown to the university since his retirement is any indication at all, there's no doubt Williams surely deserved the honor bestowed upon him.
The retired vice president continues to hike the mountains near his adopted home of Colorado Springs, Colo., year-round.He supplements that activity with skiing during the winter.
He tutors graduate and doctoral physics students from Cal-Tech and MIT and teaches (as a guest lecturer) at The Air Force Academy.
Despite all this activity, however, he's never forgotten the university where he served under five presidents - another EIU distinction that only he holds.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Williams was serving as high school principal in the city of Worthington when he decided to pursue his Ph.D. in philosophy from his alma mater, Ohio State University.Less than a month after graduating, the then-34-year-old began teaching at Eastern as an assistant professor in education.
Although Williams had no intention of returning to the field of administration, the environment at Eastern changed his mind.Enrollment began booming and a need developed for personnel with administrative experience.
In 1962, with 10 years of experience behind him, Williams easily stepped into the role of associate dean of student academic services, intending to fill the slot for the remainder of the school year only.President Quincy Doudna had other ideas, however -- and a salary offer Williams didn't feel he could refuse.
when Doudna installed Williams as dean of student academic services.
In 1969, Williams accepted a Fulbright Fellowship to Sri Lanka for the purpose of advising that government in the ways of setting up a community college.He received a telegram from Doudna announcing that a vice presidency position had opened.
"I shall not ask you if you are a candidate for this position," the telegram read."You are hereby appointed.Come home."
Williams did as he was asked, and it was there he stayed for the next 22 years.
Before leaving Eastern, Williams and his wife, Joan, became known as strong supporters of women's athletics at the school, proving their passion by endowing a woman's basketball coaching position, as well as a woman's athletic scholarship. They also donated the 13-foot-high bronze sculpture of a female basketball player which now graces the north door leading to EIU's Lantz Arena.And, in 1995, Eastern's softball complex was named in the couple's honor.
In addition, Williams is a recipient of the Livingston C. Lord Award, the highest honor the university can bestow on an employee or member of the community.The award is named after the university's first president.
