Hero Honored by Hudson

May 29, 2014 —

Hudson’s Memorial Day activities over the weekend were highlighted by ceremonies honoring Marine Staff Sergeant Timothy Williams, who was awarded the Silver Star earlier this year for action in Afghanistan in 2012.

Williams spoke to students at the school on Friday, was the Grand Marshal of the annual Memorial Day Parade, and was honored at a ceremony held at the high school at noon on Monday. Hundreds of people showed up for the activities.

Members of the community raised funds to bring Williams and his family from his base in California for the event.

Williams is a graduate of Hudson Area High School, and was a former standout Tiger athlete.
