William was also singled out by the high school administration during the last school year as a winner of the Rensselaer Medal and scholarship, awarded to promising high school juniors who have distinguished themselves in mathematics and science. “The Rensselaer Medal is a wonderful way to pay tribute to the high school students who have achieved excellence in math and science,” said Karen Long, Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. “As we do so, we are aware that these early achievements, as impressive as they are, mark only one milestone on their future journeys of commitment to hard work, drive, focus, and collaborations. The Rensselaer Medal winners represent the next generation of leaders, scientists, innovators, artists, scholars, game designers, architects, humanitarians, and entrepreneurs.”
William is the son of Mark and Jill Bednarz of Lower Makefield Township.
