William Weaver Kesler III of Salisbury received a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Weaver earned his undergraduate degree from Duke University in 2009.

Involved in orthopaedic surgery research throughout medical school, his work related to reducing complications in external fixator pins has been presented at local, regional, and national medical conferences, and he was a co-author on an article published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma.
