What is the Hulon Willis Association?
The Hulon Willis Association (HWA) is William & Mary’s African-American alumni organization. The association’s namesake, Hulon Willis Sr. M.Ed ’56, enrolled in 1951 as the university’s first black student. Since its founding, HWA has remained “dedicated to encouraging fellowship among alumni, promoting the interests of the Alumni Association and the College and enhancing the quality of life for current African-American students at the College through scholarship opportunities as well as other avenues of involvement.” HWA’s scholarship, the Hulon Willis Sr. Memorial Scholarship Endowment, provides financial assistance for William & Mary students who work to contribute to the university’s multicultural community.
