While in Morgantown, Dr. Craig Williams learned the meaning of being a mountaineer football fan as he lived a stone’s throw from the stadium. He even managed to pick up some lunch money by parking cars in his front yard. If you think UNC fans are crazy about basketball, then you ought to see hundreds of RV’s heading to town the night before a home football game in Morgantown. It is quite exciting. Although he enjoyed his time in the beautiful state of West Virginia, Dr. Craig Williams never forgot the sunny weather and warm southern hospitality of North Carolina. Upon Graduation from WVU, he moved back to Raleigh and began practicing with his father. Dr. Craig Williams’ wife, Melissa, teaches middle school art at Trinity Academy of Raleigh.
