A lifelong Shenandoah Valley resident, Michael Williams (known as M Dub to "his kids") has been at R-MA since the fall of 1997. Michael wears many hats here at the Academy. His current primary responsibility is serving as the Director of Student Life, including Upper and Middle School Residential Life and Activities.
Students become familiar with Williams’ voice quickly, as he is the public address announcer for our football games and sings the National Anthem at many school events. He even drives an R-MA bus when needed!
Williams possesses a Master’s Degree in Theology through the University of Wales at Lampeter. His passion is the Old Testament and, specifically, the life and impact of Abraham on world religion and world events. Michael teaches a Comparative Religion class during Summer School.
In the rare moments when he is not on campus, Williams is an avid reader, and loves anything by C.S. Lewis or J.R.R. Tolkien. He is an active member of the Rotary Club of Warren County, an active church goer, occasional lay preacher, and (as an ordained minister) officiates weddings and funerals, when called upon. Williams is married to Occupational Therapist Sherry Williams. They have a fourteen year old son (an 8th grader at the R-MA Middle School), Alan, and a dog, Precious. In his spare time, he likes to spend time with his wife and son... or sleep. He may also be found at a Washington Redskins or Washington Nationals game or watching NASCAR. His favorite quote (and attitude towards life) is: "Preach the gospel at all times. If necessary, use words," by St. Francis of Asissi.
