College Park, Md. — UM alum and Minnesota Viking Madieu Williams (class of 2003) was featured on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams
on Wednesday, September 8.
NBC became interested in Madieu’s international philanthropic efforts last November when he announced the Madieu Williams Center for Global Health Initiatives at the School of Public Health. As the producers learned more about the work Madieu has done in Sierra Leone, Africa, his birth place, they identified Madieu as someone “Making a Difference.”
The program aired the day before the Minnesota Vikings kick-off their 2010 regular season with a game against the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome on Thursday, September 9.
