BOWIE HIGH Valedictorian Lily Nguyen

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 valedictorian Lily Nguyen.

NAME: Lily Nguyen

SCHOOL: Bowie High School

COLLEGE: University of Texas at Arlington


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

Don’t do exactly what your friends do. That’s what I did. I would move away from what everyone did and try my own things. That’s how I made it to where I am today. It was a very good experience even though I didn’t do everything everyone else did.

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

I’m not really sure because I don’t watch a lot of superhero movies. I would like to be a princess from one of the Disney movies because I grew up watching them, and they are very wholesome and nostalgic for me.

〉What are you most excited about after graduation?

I’m most excited to learn new things and meet new people. I don’t know how college is going to be, but I can’t wait to go on and live my life and get a job and start a family.

〉Who inspires you the most and why?

My aunt. Her name is Mary. She inspires me the most because she was valedictorian at my school 10 years ago. She sought out and became an optometrist and I want to do the same thing because she seems so happy, and she has so much free time to go on vacations and spend time with her family. I want to live like that, too.

〉What’s been your favorite high school memory?

At the end of my junior year I was very close to my AP bio class and we all made t-shirts together and we wore them during tests and we took pictures everywhere together. It was a great experience. We shared a Google drive with our teacher, too.
