    Ben Williams CutoutMr. Benjamin Williams, who is often called "Mr. Fantastic," is the 2013 Tree of Life Honoree. In addition to serving three four-year terms on the Broward County School Board as the Member for District 5, Mr. Williams had a outstanding career as an educator and administrator in Broward County Schools. During his years as a administrator, he is noted as designing and implementing the county's first magnet program at Walker Elementary in 1975, he later took the Performing Arts Magnet program to Parkway Middle School in 1988 and added technology to the curriculum as the county began to utilize technology in the district. The performing arts magnet at Parkway led to adding Arts and Music to Dillard High School with Williams as the principal in 1992. Williams was also the first black administrator assigned to a predominantly white elementary school when he became the principal of Nova Blanche Forman Elementary in 1970.
