A native of Fayetteville, William McEver considers the University of Arkansas to be an important part of his life. Attending Fayetteville High School, he lettered two years on the football team and was captain of the 2011 State Championship team. As co-founder of the ESPN club and vice president of the Spanish National Honors Society, he succeeded not only in sports and academics, but also as a leader.
Looking to continue his efforts in college, there was no doubt that he would spend the next four years of his life at the University of Arkansas. Growing up a dedicated Razorback fan, McEver admits, “I could think of no better place to start my college career.
“Thank you so much for awarding me with the alumni Endowed Scholarship in the amount of $6,500. I’m honored to accept this scholarship and I will do everything I can to make sure I uphold the standards of excellence represented in this scholarship while I attend the University of Arkansas,” he said. “Since I plan on attending medical school, this scholarship alleviates a significant financial burden and will allow me to save money to use to follow my dream of becoming a doctor.”
Planning for a future in the medical field, he is prepared to begin his journey on the Fayetteville campus by majoring in bio-medical engineering. As a new program on campus, he looks forward to building relationships that will help to further his goals in the upcoming years. Apart from academics, McEver is eager to participate in various student activities, including Greek Life, student government and intramural sports.
