From Boots to Books

Williams welcomed two veterans to the Class of 2020 through its partnership with Service to Schools (S2S) and VetLink, which connects high-achieving vets with highly selective colleges and universities.

Benton Leary ’20 served in the U.S. Navy for six years before deciding to pursue a college education. An S2S advisor recommended Williams, and Leary was “blown away” by how engaged the community was during a campus visit.

Landon Marchant ’20 spent two years in the U.S. Air Force. Attending Williams, Marchant says, feels “like coming home to a place I’d never been before.”

The two join former Navy SEAL Jake Bingaman ’19.
