Lizzie Dagg has worked hard to make the most of her experiences at Argyle High School.
She is a member of the varsity cheerleading squad, the varsity track team (100-meters, 300-meter hurdles and triple jump) and the Argyle High School Marching band to name a few.
The Argyle junior said she likes to participate in different things, because of the lessons she learns.
“People choose how to spend their time based on their personalities, so by being involved in many organizations, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some of my close friends, who I may not have met if I had not been as involved,” Dagg said. “When I first started high school, I told myself that I didn’t want to graduate and feel like I missed out on anything, so I’ve tried to be as involved as possible.”
Dagg, 17, is also on the UIL Headline Writing team, a member of the National Honor Society, a Student Council member and a member of the Argyle Youth Advisory Council.
She said that the best part about attending Argyle High School is the way that the school’s success has bred more success.
“There is a sense of support that isn’t found many other places,” Dagg said. “Because Argyle is extremely competitive in academics, as well as sports, this allows the students to push one another to be the best that they can be.”
The junior class president carries a 104.3 grade point average and is ranked 11th in her class.
Dagg said the most important thing affecting young people today is one that can be used to both positive and negative ends.
“The biggest issue affecting young people is technology,” she said. “Technology can be good, because people can obtain knowledge by the press of a button, making it easier to learn. However, the downside of technology is that people do not communicate face-to-face and rely on their cell phones for their relationships with family, friends and significant others.”
After high school, Dagg plans to attend Texas A&M University and major in biomedical sciences in hope of one day becoming a doctor.
