It’s Your Colusa County: Luke Williams

Luke Williams

Eighteen years young, Arbuckle resident Luke Williams will soon be a graduate of Arbuckle High School.

Fond of his hometown Arbuckle, Williams is the oldest son of Darrin and Amiee.

“I love how it’s a small community where everyone knows everyone,” said Williams.

Williams enjoys golf and baseball.

“I haven’t been into sports, however, my favorite sport is baseball,” Williams said.

An active participant in the Arbuckle FFA, Williams enjoys being a part of his high school chapter.

“I don’t show livestock, but I have enjoyed taking part in putting on the Arbuckle Field Day,” said Williams.

Upon graduating this week and after the summer months have passed, Williams will attend Chico State.

“I am going for a major in Crop Science and eventually would like to become a Pest Control Advisor (PCA),” Williams stated.

Williams decision to major in crop science was influenced by his dad’s profession in farming sunflowers and tomatoes.

“I help run equipment with my dad. I have been helping him for as long as I can remember,” said Williams. “I started out raking leaves and picking up trash. My dad has made a large influence in my choices.”

As with any young adult, Williams has a mentor, his father, whom he contributes his success thus far in life.

“My mentor is my dad for many reasons, however, there’s one reason in particular: He has worked hard to teach me how to have a work ethic and therefore how to succeed to in life,” said Williams.

Williams favorite county event is the Colusa County Fair.

“It’s a great way to end school and start summer,” he said.

A quote Williams says is his favorite and treasured: “In school, you are taught a lesson then given a test. In life, you are given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
