Darold Williamson

Why is 2010 Pillar of Trustworthiness Darold Williamson '01, still enrolled at Baylor University in 2010? Maybe because he's so fast: 44.27 seconds - personal best time - 400 meters. After attending Cable Elementary and Anson Jones Middle School, Williamson distinguished himself in 1999 as the sophomore anchor of the Holmes Huskies' 4x400 Relay Team by winning the Texas State Championship and ultimately setting five school relay and dash records. Entering Baylor in 2002, he helped win four NCAA track titles and won 13 All-American honors and 13 Big 12 Conference championships with his team and individually. Devoted and consistent in his achievements (25 championships in 5 years), Williamson was the first from San Antonio to win an Olympic gold medal in track and field as anchor of the U.S. Men's 1600-meter Relay Team at the 2004 Olympic Summer Games in Athens, Greece. He continued running as a professional endorsed by Nike in 2005 and volunteered as a Baylor track coach. Currently finishing his bachelor's degree in speech communications in Waco, trust that the Pillar of Trustworthiness can do it.
