Dual Athlete and Alumna Honored as Inaugural Honorary Captain

Tonya Williams ’92 understands the importance of giving back to her alma mater. As a student-athlete, she was given the opportunity to attend PC thanks to the generosity of others. As an alumna, she aims to give that same experience to future Blue Hose.

“My experience at PC was indescribable, really,” Williams said. “You’re told it will be the best four years of your life, but that is a definite understatement.

Williams was a member of the volleyball team and the women’s basketball team from 1988 to 1992. During two of those years, she played with her sister, Dionne Carter ‘94.
