 Philip L. Williams

Merrick Post No. 1282 will be awarding a Philip L. Williams Memorial Scholarship to a deserving Bellmore/Merrick high school senior who best exemplifies the qualities of Philip L. Williams.

Phil's core values were focused on Strong Morals: Patriotism, Family Values, Community Service and a strong Work Ethic. Phil was an inspiration because he took every opportunity to exhibit and incorporate these morals in his life. He made a difference to his fellow veterans, his co-workers, as well as his family and friends by reminding us to integrate these beliefs into everyday life.
