Meet Mya Mulligan!
Mya’s journey as a TPS student began five years ago with Mrs. Fred’s English I class. Since then, she’s taken many other classes – Advanced Algebra, Precalculus, British Literature and Composition, College Pysch, U.S. History, Worldview, Biology, and others. She doesn’t have a favorite class or teacher, stating that every single class has been worth the time and money, giving her a wealth of knowledge she can only be most thankful for. All teachers have shown her ample amounts of caring, professional criticism, insight, and most importantly, tools to recognize God in all things. She thanks (in no particular order) Mrs. Crosby, Mrs. Fred, Mrs. Geno, Mrs. Gaines, Mrs. Bush, Mrs. Habacivch, Sra Kelly, Ms. McKeeman, Mrs. Massie, Mrs. Troxell, Mrs. Huisman, Mr. Mailand, Mr. Monfreda, Mr. Reisen, Sr Poortenga, Prof Hunter, and of course, Mr. Gilbert. Thank you all for your instruction and support! *virtual hugs all around* As far as her future plans go, she will attend the University of Missouri-Columbia on a full-ride scholarship for gymnastics. She plans to major in Biological Sciences for her undergraduate degree and hopefully pursue a M.D. afterward.
Favorite Bible verse:
I love Matthew 5:16 – “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven.” This scripture always reminds me to please my Father even in the toughest of times. In reminding myself of who I represent, I find great motivation to pursue all things.
Advice to the younglings of TPS:
If I were to give a piece of advice to TPS’ younglings, I would say two things. First, listen to your parents. Always. No matter what. Second, whatever age you are currently, set goals for the next ten years of your life. Know what you want to do and who you want to be, make discrete plans for how to accomplish them, and live everyday with those goals in mind.s
