William Malas, son of William and Patsy Malas of Quincy, is a student at Quincy High School, where he double majors in Information Technology and Project Lead the Way Engineering.

Billy, who is taking all Advanced Placement academics, is number two in his class of 379 with a 4.8 GPA, and the top Engineering and IT student, with a 99% average in both CVTE majors.  Through Project Lead the Way, Billy has tested and received 12 college credits for Engineering courses.

At last year’s State Skills USA competition, Billy received a gold medal in Related Technical Math. This allowed him to compete nationally, where he finished ninth in the nation.

Even though he is busy as a member of the National Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, the Programming Club, Philosophy Club, and a member of the Leadership Team for Skills USA, Billy finds time for Community Service projects of tutoring, church camp counselor, church Youth Group Coordinator, and coach for his former middle school’s LEGO Robotics Team .

Billy plans to continue his education at Harvard, Yale, MIT, WPI or ENC; he has heard back from ENC, where he was accepted.
