About Corey!

Edwin C. "Corey" Cavannaugh IV

"A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done." - Vince Lombardi

My Name is Edwin Cornelle Cavannaugh IV, however I have always liked being called Corey. I was born in Jacksonville, FL but was raised in a small rural area in Baker County in the city of Macclenny, FL. I am a very outgoing and sociable person and I really enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new things. That's really what brought me to USF, the fact that there is so much to do and see on campus and in the surrounding area. From a young age, I was very active in sports. I played baseball, football, basketball, soccer, tennis, and ran track. However once high school rolled around my focus remained on track and cross-country, and tennis. As a member of my high school's first-ever regional qualifying cross-country team as a Freshman, we continued that trend until I graduated in 2009. Also excelling in track and field, my times in the 800-meter and 4x800-meter relay races proved to be regional and state qualifying as well throughout high school. I was not only a competitive athlete, but also a dedicated student as well. Taking various honors and dual-enrollment classes, I was nominated as the valedictorian of my graduating class with an unweighted 4.0 GPA, and a weighted GPA of 4.42. I was also named one of 12 boys in the state of Florida on the FHSAA Academic All-State Team in 2009, an honor given to scholar-athletes who excel inside the classroom as well as outside.
I am in my third year here at USF majoring in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Public Health, and hope to one day work as a pediatrician. Growing up with your parents being public school teachers and volunteering around children so much really influenced me to pursue such a path. I am a very determined and hard working indvidual. I am also a very fun-loving, light-hearted guy who thinks that laughter is the best medicine. I like to stay busy with studying, student organizations, work, and friends.
