Luke Moran is the valedictorian for Lake Highlands High School’s class of 2019. He’ll head to Texas A&M University in College Station next fall.

Days before graduation, he reflected on his time at Lake Highlands. Moran, along with his classmates, will graduate at 4:30 p.m. June 2 at Lake Highlands High.

What is your fondest memory of Lake Highlands High?

Cross country. In the fall, it rained a lot and there was a foot of mud that we had to run through. I like running in the rain.

What will you miss the most about high school?

The people. A lot of people are splitting up and going all over the country for college. 

What do you plan to study at Texas A&M?

Right now, I’m looking at finance. I just like math a lot and numbers. But that could change. 

Why did you pick Texas A&M?

Both parents went there and I’ve grown up around it my whole life. It seems like a good fit.

How do you think you’ll be feeling on graduation day?

A little bit sad but excited for the future. I’m a little nervous about speaking just because there will be thousands of people there.

How do you plan to celebrate?

There’s a senior all night party at Dave & Busters that I’ll probably go to.
