Spotlight Story

Leigh Williams ’01 knew he wanted to attend Marymount Manhattan College ever since he first visited. He says, “I got a sense that the students who attended MMC truly enjoyed being there.” He earned a bachelor’s degree in English and credits MMC for fostering his lifelong curiosity, questioning everything he encounters in his studies and his work. Leigh currently lives in Brandon, Florida, a suburb of Tampa, and works as the associate director of program support for PACE Center for Girls, which offers academic programming and counseling services for girls ages 11 to 17 across Florida. In addition to doing this life-changing work, Leigh is a long-distance runner and works on music production in his spare time.
