The Northeast Alabama Community College (NACC) Foundation’s annual Mustang Scramble golf tournament and golf ball drop is set for Thursday, Sept. 10, at Dogwood Hills Golf Resort and Gardens in Flat Rock. This year, teams will tee off at either 8:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.

“The NACC Mustang Scramble is an outstanding event and we appreciate everyone who participates,” said NACC President Dr. David Campbell.  “Outdoor golfing has been one of the few physical activities permitted under CDC guidelines, and we will make certain all coronavirus prevention standards are followed.”

=Rudder Williams will be the pilot for the fly over ball drop at this year’s Mustang Scramble. Williams is a longtime supporter of NACC Foundation events and serves as the chairperson of Campbell’s advisory board. He was born and raised in Bridgeport.

He married his high school sweetheart, Donna Williams, and they have two children, four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. 

=Williams is retired from his business, Skyline Oil.  He has been an aircraft pilot for over 44 years and is the chairman of the Scottsboro Airport Board.

Williams is also on the revolving loan fund board for TARCOG, the State of Alabama Aviation Council, a member of the Scottsboro Rotary Club, and is the Secretary of the Economic Development Authority Board. 

In his spare time, Williams enjoys spending time with his family and of course, flying.
