East Carteret High School - William Chadwick
WITN Class of 2021
I am William Chadwick, a senior at East Carteret High School. I live in Down East Carteret County with my parents Chris and Kathryn Chadwick, and my sister Larrington. I have always had a deep connection to the water and the coast. Whether it was going out in the boat with my family in the summer or going with my dad duck hunting in the winter, there is no place I would rather be than Core Sound. I have been involved as an officer in the school’s FFA for all four years of high school and currently hold the office of president. I am an Eagle Scout and was involved in the scouting program for ten years until receiving the rank of Eagle in 2018. Politics and the yearning to help my community has always been an interest of mine. I plan on attending N.C. State University majoring in Business Marketing and Minoring in Political Science.
