ESU Honors Washington D.C. Branch Member Marjorie Williams

The ESU was pleased to honor stalwart member Marjorie Williams on reaching her 100th year. Of British parents and born in India, Marjorie has exemplified the international nature of the ESU and has enjoyed a life that spans our history. We celebrate her career in medicine and service to the Veterans Administration and are grateful for her almost 70-year membership in the Washington D.C. Branch. Her time in the Branch was highlighted by her efforts in starting its National Shakespeare Competition in the 1980's and running the competition for more than ten years. A certificate was presented to Marjorie in her home on Friday, January 25th. May she enjoy many more years in the comfort of family and friends.
