Posted in , , on June 3, 2024


It’s graduation season and we are celebrating the Class of 2024 valedictorian and salutatorian for all eight Arlington ISD high schools. Meet Bowie High School’s co-salutatorian Timothy Pham.

NAME: Timothy Pham

SCHOOL: Bowie High School

COLLEGE: University of Texas at Arlington


What is one piece of advice you would give an incoming freshman?

I would advise them to stay on top of the classes they wish to take. Of course, not procrastinate. I would also advise them to explore their options before they decide what they truly want to do and go to college because I feel like high school is that time where you’re open to a lot of opportunities and have that time for programs and try your hand at what might interest you later on.

If you were a superhero, which one would you be and why?

I guess I would be my favorite superhero Dr. Strange. Just because he knows a lot. He was also a medical professional before he became a superhero and I also think magic is really cool.

What are you most excited about after graduation?

It’s exciting and nerve wracking the opportunities that are opening up to me as I graduate high school like college and getting into my career pathway that I wish to take. Getting to meet people and experience the world as I go.

Who inspires you the most and why?

My father inspires me the most because he has succeeded after being an immigrant coming from Vietnam. It’s very difficult to do that, coming to America at such a young age and being able to succeed in America. He had hardships and all sorts of things, so he really inspires me the most to do my best and appreciate what I have.

What’s been your favorite high school memory?

Going on a BPA (Business Professionals of America) trip with my friends because we made it to state and nationals. The traveling times by ourselves, of course we were with the school, but we enjoyed the competitions and the time as we traveled. We did a lot of fun things there.
