On Thursday, May 25th Lowell Catholic High School sent off their graduating class of 2017, including senior and Tewksbury resident William Small. William was named the valedictorian of his class, graduating summa cum laude with a GPA of 4.3. He was one of the 89 who graduated this past week, out of which only 5 are residents of Tewksbury.
During his tenure at Lowell Catholic William remained dedicated to his studies, choosing to challenge himself by taking multiple advanced placement courses. His efforts were recognized at the school’s annual Scholarship and Awards night, where William was awarded certificates of merit in Western Religions, AP Literature, and AP Calculus as well as the Sister Jeannine Bernier Math and Science Award, which is awarded to a student annually who exhibits excellence in those areas. He also graduates with membership in the National Honors Society, the Latin Honors Society, and Mu Alpha Theta, a mathematics honor society.
In the fall, William plans on attending Saint Anselm College and working toward a double major in history and education. His love of history has been with him since he was a child and has since grown through his classes at Lowell Catholic. William learned to love education as he spent over 100 hours volunteering at a neighboring school. With his degrees, he hopes to one day become a history teacher.
