Central Times

William Tong
William Tong is a junior at Naperville Central.  Outside of writing for the Central Times, he is a captain of the Naperville Central Debate Team, member of the Naperville Central Math Team, and violinist in the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras.  In his free time, William likes to cook, play Starcraft II, and read sappy, dramatic novels. William has no idea what he wants to go into in the future, but hopefully it doesn’t involve writing about himself in the third person.
