LHS Valedictorian and Salutatorian

lhs valedictorian
 

Valedictorian Evan Roman

Father’s name: Lawrence Roman
Mother’s name: Michele Roman

Where do you plan to attend college?
The University of Texas at Dallas

What do you plan to major in, and what are your career plans?
I plan to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Software Engineering. I intend to work at a business in the Dallas metroplex such as Texas Instruments to gain experience and expand my skills for my future.

What school activities have you been involved in?
I have been involved in Mu Alpha Theta (president), Science National Honor Society (president), National Honor Society, Junior World Affairs Council, Business and Marketing Club and Student Council.

What teacher impacted you the most and how?
It is difficult to choose one teacher as all of them have had a significant impact on my character, but Ms. Nancy Peters, my Business Information Management teacher, instilled motivation in me to be the best in anything I wished to pursue. With her wisdom and support, I felt empowered to stand up for myself and pursue my scholastic achievements.

What are your favorite memories of school?
Having the fourth period off during my senior year was relieving and opened up more opportunities for me to interact with my friends. I remember when my friends and I would all get out at 2 p.m. to go to the library or someone’s house to play video and social games.

What is the most interesting school project/assignment you have done?
My Senior Autobiography Project in Mrs. Counts' AP Literature class allowed me to reflect on my accomplishments, well-being, and future. We had the whole class-year to do it, and not only did it give me a taste of upcoming college projects but also made me understand my place in my community and the issues I may face in the future.

What advice do you have for future high school graduates?
You are not truly committed to anything in high school other than to yourself. Take life seriously, but not too seriously. Live in the moment and make yourself stand out to others. Appreciate where you are, where you have been, and those who helped get you there.

Salutatorian Toni Avila

Father’s name: Alfonso Avila
Mother’s name: Luz Avila

Where do you plan to attend college?
The University of Texas at Dallas.

What do you plan to major in, and what are your career plans?
Software Engineering. I’m likely going to start off as a junior software engineer and slowly build up some experience in the field and hone my abilities. As the years pass, I’ll try my best to move up in positions after I’m completely comfortable with what I do. I’ll eventually return to school for a masters degree in the same field or a closely related one in order to keep up or stay ahead of the industry.

What school activities have you been involved in?
NHS, Science NHS, Mu Alpha Theta, Environmental Club, Junior World Affairs Council, Student Council, Business and Marketing Club.

What teacher impacted you the most and how?
Samuel Hawke - Math (Geometry), Elizabeth Gonzalez - Social Studies (AP World History). I couldn't narrow it down to one teacher, but I could narrow it down to a couple. These teachers, while likely unbeknownst to them, made school genuinely enjoyable for me. They were the most relatable and understanding of my age group. With Mr. Hawke playing Super Smash Bros. and Mrs. Gonzalez providing a lax feel to the classroom, my experience at Killough was great.

What are your favorite memories of school?
My favorite memories of school are volunteering with friends and having 4th period off my Senior year. Volunteering in and of itself was always an enjoyable experience, but having friends around made it so much better. As for having 4th period off for an entire school year, it was incredibly relieving. I leave school at 2 p.m. every day and usually go out to eat with friends then proceed to take a nap; I love it.

What is the most interesting school project/assignment you have done?
The most interesting project/assignment I’ve done was having to find a disadvantaged group in the world and develop a nonprofit organization revolving around aiding them. My group and I chose to focus on helping immigrants from Central America. We had to present our work to actual workers from nonprofits and be very professional while presenting.

What advice do you have for future high school graduates?
I guess the best piece of advice I can give is to have fun. I used to laugh when people said that you’ll be graduating before you know it, but they were right. These 4 years passed in the blink of an eye. Make memories, find a solid group of friends, and enjoy life. School and your grades are important, but so is your happiness. You never get to experience High School again.
