HUNTSVILLE (AP) — Cederick Williams, the top officer at the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama, has been fired over allegations that he may have charged up to $10,000 in personal expenses on the organizationís credit cards.
Williams, who has been on paid administrative leave since Aug. 29 during an audit, declined to comment on his firing Wednesday by the organizationís board. Board chairman Greg Crabtree said it was a unanimous decision.

Williams oversaw the merger earlier this year of the Madison County and Athens clubs.
