Baker Proud Summer 2019 - 7

Evolving into a
business leader
Cedric Willams, '16, always knew that business was in
his future and began experimenting as an entrepreneur at a
young age.
"At age 7 I had a business sweeping sidewalks for small
businesses, and at 12 I started a landscaping business," he
said. "I have been fascinated with the world of business since
I was young."
Williams knew that a college education would be an important first step to launching a business, and that's where
Baker came in.
"Baker was my first choice because they really showed me
they are a family there," he said. "That made me comfortable
to be who I am and that gave me the confidence to try new
things, which helped me learn a lot."
Williams majored in business administration and found
that his professors were eager to see him succeed.
"Professor Lee Green gave me a lot of confidence as an
entrepreneur," Williams said. "Courses like Business Law and
his introductory business classes opened my eyes to the other
side of the business. And Professor Paulette Schwerdt helped
me improve my weaknesses and forced me to learn attributes
of a business that I wasn't very interested in."
While at Baker, Williams played defensive back for the
football team, and credits the sport for instilling lifelong
time-management skills.
