William Cavedon is described as an extremely bright, mature, genuine, well-rounded young man who exhibits strong intellect, commitment, and leadership in all of his academic and extracurricular activities. He has been the enthusiastic voice that motivates others to get involved, and he is well respected by both the faculty and his peers.
Cavedon has excelled in a very rigorous course of studies over four years, taking the highest course levels in each subject throughout his tenure, while taking a keen interest in the fields of biology and forensics.

He continuously leads by example in all of his activities. He has attended Boys’ State, a National Youth Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., and he has the Eagle Scout Award.
