Judge John Everett Williams, the presiding judge of the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals, received a special honor from his hometown of Huntingdon over the weekend. Williams was given Huntingdon’s 2018 Outstanding Citizen Award as part of the city’s 26th Annual Heritage Festival, in a ceremony held on Saturday morning. Williams was appointed to the Court of Criminal Appeals in 1998, following 17 years in private practice in Huntingdon. Earlier this year, he was named presiding judge of the Court of Criminal Appeals, becoming the first judge from West Tennessee to hold that position in 25 years. The Outstanding Citizen Award is bestowed each year in recognition of a person’s history of service to the Huntingdon community.
