Christopher James Williams
Class of 2014
Parents: Kelly & Julie Williams
Riding dirt bikes is his passion. Christopher Williams has been riding motor bikes since his first Honda 50 at 3-years-old. Now he competes and wins on the state and national level on a 250 F motor bike, while he also races to win both athletically and academically.
In addition to being a Grand National Champion motor bike racer, Christopher has been both Region and State Champion in track in the 400 meter race. When asked about his greatest achievement Christopher related, "I broke the school record in the 800 meter run. I set that goal in 9th grade and I broke it in the 11th. I had great coaches in Beth Burke and Matt Just."
Academically, he's been on the Headmaster's list every year of his high school career and the list of his scholar awards is long. Christopher has a predilection for math and science joining the school's Redneck Robotics Team, coached by Karen Whitten. He's been a member since 9th grade, and this year, for the third time, traveled to Orlando to attend the Regional F.I.R.S.T. Robotics Competition, where the Redneck Robotics came in 6th out of 62 entries.
Christopher is a graduate of Youth Leadership Bulloch and active in Young Life, a Christian student organization. Once he gets to Athens this fall he will train for a college leadership role in "College Life."
His greatest challenge so far has been "trying to stay on top of everything: academics, sports, racing. I have lots take care of," he said. It's especially challenging considering the time he's devoted to cross country motor bike racing. Christopher and brother, Kelly, along with Mom and Dad, travel the U.S. with a motorhome and a trailer full of racing bikes most weekends.
But that doesn't keep him from racing ahead in school. Joint-enrolled at Georgia Southern in both 11th and 12th grades, Christopher will start the University of Georgia this fall as a sophomore majoring in biomedical engineering. All of that tinkering on motorbikes and robotics will give him an edge over the competition as he races to design and create the prosthetics of the future.
