Special Olympics State Champions

October 20, 2023

Kerry Williams, of Lee’s Summit, formerly of Canton, was a member of the Dreamers Softball team. The team won the Missouri State Special Olympics Softball championship on Oct. 14 in Jefferson City. Kerry hit a home run during the game and said “this one’s for Big Mike, (the late Mike Bringer). Kerry “Beaker” Williams was one of the Canton Tiger’s biggest fans while he attended school and continues to be a Canton Tiger at heart. Kerry was always on the sidelines helping the team and was able to attend several State Tournaments with the Canton Tigers. Several local Canton community members and friends attended the game to cheer Kerry on his way to a state victory. Kerry is able to live alone and is employed. Former Canton resident Dan Wiltshire is his guardian. Congratulations Kerry on a well deserved state championship. Kerry is pictured on the field and center front row with a group of fans.
