TPS Seniors 2018

Mya Mulligan

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


  1. Mya, I’ve very much enjoyed being in Psych with you and getting to know you a bit through things like Project Me. I know your future will take you great places, and I hope you make the most of it! (Just keep that mind wandering in check, yeah? 😉 )

    • Megan, it has been an honor being your classmate. Your thoughtful insight and answers in class inspired me to study my psych better xD. I pray that your future be filled with success and fond times. (Will do 😉

      • Hi Raelen! Same here!! You are such a great person…so intelligent and talented.

        Thank you =)

        Keep doing the awesome things you do. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for your future. (btw, sorry about the first person. I like sent my bio in at the last minute, so I forgot that important detail *headdesk*)

  2. Hey, Mya! I really enjoyed having you in a few classes over the last few years. A gymnastics scholarship is pretty impressive. God bless 🙂

  3. M I Z…!!!! You will get the rest very soon 🙂 We’ll be watching you at the ZOU.

    • Hi Mrs.C,

      Awesome xD. It is too bad you and Mr.C are moving… because then I could meet the both of you.

      It is an honor to be going to your school. I will make you both proud!

    • Wow, I never use Clay, so my replies are in all the wrong places Dx. Sorry!


      Hi Mr.C,
      I have not had the honor of having one of your classes. My sister, however, adores you! I appreciate the support from you and Mrs. C! Go Tigers!!!

  4. Congratulations, Mia! Can’t wait to hear about your experiences at the ZOU!
