William Benedict

William Benedict transferred to A&M-San Antonio in the fall of 2017 as a biology major.

William serves as the vice president of the Biology Club and is an active member of the Pre-Health Society. In addition to his leadership positions, William also works as a research assistant under two faculty members, Dr. Crook and Dr. Ross, in the biology department.

In his spare time, William enjoys volunteering at the San Antonio Zoo where he has devoted over 600 hours of service. This year he received the Presidential Award in Environmental Stewardship in recognition for the many hours served in his community.

Outside of academia, William relaxes with his family and friends by going to the movies, playing card games and conversing around the table.

His dream is to obtain a DVM and Ph.D. in Wildlife Medicine, and ultimately work as a zoological veterinarian performing surgery on large mammals such as elephants.
