ECCC Golfer Participates in NJCAA Division II Tournament

Williams is a 2014 graduate of ECCC, where he received numerous other honors.

He is a product of Parkers Chapel High School in Eldorado, AR.

ECCC golf coach Chris Clark said of the outstanding student-athlete: “I’m very proud of Sawyer for the success he has had playing golf at ECCC the past two years. I am even more proud of him for being the outstanding young man that he is. East Central Community College could not have had a better representative in the NJCAA National Golf Tournament than Sawyer Williams. We will miss him and wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.”
