Col. Barry Williams marked a high point in his career when he was named a White House Fellow. The program gave him first hand, high-level experience with the workings of the federal government. Since then, Williams has repaid that privilege by continuing to contribute to the nation as a future leader.
As White House Fellow (July 20002 - Set. 2003) Williams served as special assistant to the director of the Office of Personnel Management, worked with Congress, federal agencies, and other stakeholders to implement human capital policies and initiatives designed to meet the Presidential Management Agenda.
In 2003, he created and launched the federal government’s first “e-scholar” website which placed nearly a billion dollars in federal jobs and educational programs (internships, scholarships, fellowships, grants, and apprenticeships) at the fingertips of teenagers through adults for the first time. The same year, he received the President Theodore Roosevelt “Leadership Award for Excellence” and was recipient of the M.W. Stringer Masonic Temple Children’s Angel Award for community youth mentoring.
It is also worth noting that Williams served as class president at the National War College (July 2011–July 2012). He was selected over 257 other students by the commandant. Williams was also class spokesperson representing 23 countries and the U.S. Corps of Engineers' first African-American officer in the position. As part of his duties, he presided over ceremonial events, supervised planning efforts of student-led activities, provided oversight of class budget, fiscal planning, recognition of developing issues pertaining to students, and served as conduit between faculty/staff and the student body.
He graduated with a master's degree in national security and strategic studies. Only the top 17 percent of officers in the Department of the Army are selected to attend this senior-level year-long course in national security strategy each year at the National War College.
Col. Williams is a 2014 BEYA winner for Career Achievement in Government.
