Peck Gym named after former coach Coach Nelson P. Williams Jr.

City of Fernandina Beach
August 24, 2020

A dedication ceremony was held last week naming Peck Gym the “Coach Nelson P. Williams Jr. Gymnasium”, by order of Resolution 2020-28. Coach Williams committed thousands of hours to City of Fernandina Beach youth. He was much more than a coach; he taught life lessons anchored in family values, built self-esteem, instilled pride, and persistently pushed for excellence. He also led initiatives to construct the Elm Street Recreation Center and the gym now named after him. Thank you to Mr. Frink and the Peck Alumni for organizing the occasion.
The late Nelson Paul Williams, former coach, is recognized.
