Loyd Johnson Williams


William Still, a State Speaking Contest winner from 1945, once said, "We were really poor farmers and Mr. Loyd was an educated man who came to teach us." That is exactly what Mr. Williams did.

Mr. Williams began his career in 1936 at Kite High School. He taught here for a year before leaving and going to teach at Grayson High School. He taught at Grayson from 1937 until 1957. He then taught for two years at Dacula High School and taught at Greene County High School from 1959 until 1973.

Adult education was also a very important part of Mr. Williams' teaching career. He had adult farmer classes that were eagerly attended by many. Mr. Williams was also able to unite the farmers in cooperative enterprises. As a part of Mr. Williams' thesis for his Masters Degree in Agriculture, he developed a fence post treating plant to assist farmers in ensuring a longer life for pine posts. These are just a few of his many contributions to the field of agriculture.

Mr. Williams career was very successful and under his leadership his FFA chapter was honored with numerous awards. In 1946, Grayson FFA had the District and State winner in the Public Speaking Contest and was named the Outstanding FFA Chapter in Georgia. That same year Mr. Williams was President of Georgia State Vocational Teachers Association. In 1953-1954 and 1954 -1955 Grayson FFA had State Winners in Cooperative Leadership. Mr. Williams was awarded the Georgia State Farmer degree in 1954. From 1950-1955 Grayson FFA had many first place winners in the State Forestry Soil Conservation and Seed Identification Contest. While he was in Greene County the FFA also had high honors. From 1959-1973 approximately eight students from the Greene County FFA had State Home Electrical Projects, and in 1964 the Greene County FFA received the Georgia Beef Cattle Association Award and Mr. Williams was honored as Outstanding Educational Leader in Georgia.
