Media cover Williams Hall dedication ceremony

News Center Maine, WABI-TV (Channel 5 in Bangor) and WFVX-TV (Fox 22/ABC 7 in Bangor) reported on the dedication ceremony of Williams Hall, formerly known as C. C. Little Hall. The Hall was named after Beryl Warner Williams, a Bangor native and the first Black woman to obtain a degree in mathematics at the University of Maine in 1935. “When Beryl Warner Williams’ name came to the foreground and we were able to look at her extraordinary time at the University of Maine and beyond, the absolute commitment that she has had across her life to social justice, to equity, to making a difference for all people — I couldn’t have found a better suggestion for this nomination,” said University of Maine President Joan Ferrini-Mundy.
