Mr. THOMPSON of Mississippi. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a
remarkable Law Enforcer, Deputy Terry Williams, Sr.
On August 4, 1968, Henry and Emma Roberts gave birth to Terry Williams, Sr. He is a 1986 graduate of Quitman County High School in Marks, MS.
Deputy Williams furthered his education by attending Northwest Community College and majoring in Communication.
His first job was a machine operator for the Thermos Company, where he learned leadership skills. After leaving Thermos, he began working at Frame Picture Enterprise in Batesville, MS. During his time there, he supervised for 9 years.
In 2001, Deputy Williams began a job with the Quitman County Sheriff Department as a part-time jailer. Since his employment with the Quitman County Sheriff Department, he has served in many capacities such as County Arson Investigator, Triad Coordinator, Juvenile Resource Officer, Jail Administrator, Dispatcher and Deputy Sheriff. Also he serves and is acting Chief of Police for the town of Sledge, MS.
Deputy Williams is married to Lucille Williams, who has worked for the Quitman County Justice for the past 16 years. He is the father of four children.
Deputy Williams' goal is to continue to serve and protect the citizens of Quitman County for many more years to come.
Through God and determination, Deputy Williams will continue to make a difference in his community.
