About Williams Elementary
Everette L. Williams Elementary School will open in the summer of 2020 to accommodate for the fast growth in the southeast portion of Georgetown, TX and was paid for with funds from the 2018 Bond.
This new school was named for Everette “Pop” Williams who served as the high school principal in GISD for 19 years at the site of the original Georgetown High School at 507 E. University Avenue. That same campus later served as an elementary school under his name. In 2018, the historic building was converted again to become the Georgetown ISD Hammerlun Center for Leadership and Learning.
To honor the history of GISD, the Board approved moving the Williams name to the new campus at their November 2018 meeting.
“Pop had a lovable personality with a true heart for kids, and naming a school in his honor did — and still does — seem appropriate,” said Dr. Fred Brent, Superintendent. “We believe that the name Williams should continue to preside over a space that directly serves kids,” Brent said.
Upon opening, this will become Georgetown ISD’s 10th elementary campus, serving kindergarten through 5th grade.
