Lauryn Williams -  - University of Miami Athletics

Lauryn Williams enters her second year as the Life Skills and Community Relations Coordinator at the University of Miami.

Her primary duty is to ensure the continued development of student-athletes as people – not just in the classroom and in the arena of competition. Williams is in charge of scheduling guest speakers to share their life experiences with the student-athletes on a weekly basis, in addition to coordinating student-athlete initiatives and the athletic department’s community service projects.

As an undergrad at Miami, Williams became one of the most decorated track and field athletes in school history. A nine-time All-American, she won the NCAA National Championship in the 100-meter dash in 2004. The Rochester, Pa., native also won gold in 2005 (100-meter dash) and 2007 (4×100-meter relay) at the World Championships. She has been a Team USA member in two Olympic Games, claiming silver in the 100-meter dash in Athens during the 2004 games.
