SPRINGFIELD, Mass., May 28, 2008 -- Isaac W. Williams, Jr., of Porter, Texas, has been named campus director and assistant dean of the Houston campus of the Springfield College School of Human Services.

He rose to this position after being director of enrollment management, director of the Humble Center, and vice president for educational programs and resources at Lone Star. He earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees at Texas A&M University, Commerce.
The new Houston campus of the Springfield College School of Human Services opened its offices on May 22, 2008, at the YMCA of Greater Houston’s William V. Phillips Center for Leadership Development, at 2122 East Governors Circle.
