Dr. Jared Williams
Dr. Jared Williams grew up in southwest Fort Worth and was raised by two working parents: both were public school teachers, and his dad a pastor here in the neighborhood. Jared is a graduate of North Crowley High School and holds a bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology from Fort Valley State University - a historically black college and university, a master’s degree in Environmental Science from Texas Christian University, and a doctorate in Environmental Science and Science Education from the University of North Texas.
Jared has extensive experience leading education initiatives, organizing nonprofit and corporate stakeholders around common good and vision-casting equitable public education reform. He currently serves as the Regional Director for Leadership ISD and is a board member for many organizations such as the Tarrant Area Food Bank and DRC Housing Solutions. He recently celebrated his 11th anniversary as a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Rooted in the values his family instilled in him, Jared has dedicated his life-work to making a difference in Fort Worth on local and state issues like public education, hunger, housing and the environment. And now, he is ready to serve you and our community on the Fort Worth City Council for District 6.
