HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -
Marshall University Director of Athletics Mike Hamrick announced Monday that Steve Williams has been elected president of Marshall University's M-Club.
Williams, who lettered in football from 1975 to 1977, was elected in a vote by M-Club members on Saturday. He will replace George Lambros who has served as president of the club for the past nine years.
"I would like to thank George Lambros for all of his hard work and dedication to the M-Club over the last nine years," Hamrick said. "I am very much looking forward to the future of the M-Club. We have a lot planned for the M-Club and Steve will be a big part of that."
In addition to Williams, four other Marshall letter-winners were elected to office. George Lambros will serve as first vice-president, Bob Lester as second vice-president, Alan Meadows as secretary and Aaron Ferguson as treasurer.
"The M-Club is all about athletes helping athletes and I am looking forward to serving as president," Williams said. "I want to expand our numbers and get more people involved. With Mike Hamrick's vision and being more aggressive in our fund raising efforts there is no greater group to reach out to from the start than our former student-athletes."
Williams is a senior vice president for Huntington Investment Company, a subsidiary of Huntington Banks, where he manages a three state area of West Virginia, Western Pa., and Eastern Ohio. He is active in the community and has served as a delegate from Cabell County to the West Virginia House of Delegates and is presently an at-large member of Huntington City Council. During his time as a delegate, he was a leader in securing funding for the construction of Marshall Stadium.
He and his wife Mary, a Marshall graduate, reside in Huntington. He has two step-daughters Nikki and Laura Urban.
