Congratulations to Dyllan Muller, Class of 2016 Valedictorian, who earned a perfect 4.50 GPA, meaning he scored 98% or higher in every high school course! We recently caught up with the recent graduate to discuss his time at Legacy. Be sure to watch Dyllan's address to his fellow 2016 graduates included below our interview.
Where do you plan to attend college
Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana
What do you plan to major in, and what are your career plans?
I plan to major in Chemical Engineering and possibly Business, as well. I would like to research and create products that are useful to people (though I am not entirely sure in what field) and also be involved in the Business side of getting these products to the consumer. In addition, I hope to study abroad in Spain while at Tulane to better my Spanish and become fluent.
Which teacher impacted you the most and how?
Two teachers have had a lasting impact on my life. Mr. Doug Branch was my AP Chemistry teacher and his passion for the subject is the reason why I am studying Chemical Engineering in college. Mrs. Shane Krotz was my Spanish teacher. Not only did she create a desire in me to become fluent in Spanish, but she also introduced me to the Legacy Service Organization, which fostered my love for community service.
What are your favorite memories of school?
During high school I have had the privilege of being President of the Legacy Service Organization. Its purpose is simple: to give high-schoolers the opportunity to serve others in their community. I loved planning service events for the student body to serve with organizations like Buckner's Family Hope Center, Cornerstone Ranch, Frisco Flyers, Cornerstone Soup Kitchen, and Samaritan Inn. I cherished every moment I got to build relationships with the people at these organizations.
