R. Roosevelte Williams III has a “sincere interest in community service,” and that’s evident.
Williams started his own business to serve small businesses and nonprofits, where among many hats, he writes proposals and aids community engagement. His work at Philander Smith College as corporate and community outreach development officer helped raise over $350,000.
After work, Williams is passionate about his role as outreach coordinator of Life Skills for Youth, a program that aids young students in need.
Additionally, he is the grants and programs chair for 100 Black Men of Greater Little Rock, college to corporate life chair for Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, on the community housing advisory board of Little Rock and involved with the Arkansas Democratic Party. He also speaks at schools and community events, and will always attend a community cleanup.
Williams wants to help people better themselves, and hopes to continue joining boards and commissions to make a difference by “embracing new perspectives.”
His personal motto? “Don’t be afraid to connect the dots even when no one else can see the pattern.”
