Argyle’s Student Of Many Talents

Ever since he enrolled at Argyle High School, Timothy Davis has conquered milestone after milestone while excelling in every activity he’s been involved in. His senior year is close to an end, but no matter the task – academics, marching band, or volunteer work – those who know Timothy the best expect him to continue pouring every ounce of his focus and energy into those passions as he moves on to the next stage of his life – college.

Timothy has been accepted to Texas A&M on a full-ride academic scholarship.

“I am incredibly thankful for all the support my friends and family have shown me through high school, and I am thankful for how friendly and supportive the Argyle community has been to me,” Timothy said as he inches closer to closing out this chapter of his life.

Dedication to his education propelled Timothy to being ranked No. 1 in his class as well as two-time state champion in the UIL Calculator competition, status as a national merit scholar, and earned him a full ride at A&M through the Craig and Galen Brown Foundation Scholarship. But academic excellence is merely one of many accomplishments at Argyle to remember and pride himself on — he can also add All-State Band to that list of feats.

With a strong passion for music, he began percussion lessons in the sixth grade.

He’s so talented that The Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps based out of Casper, Wyoming noticed Timothy’s skill as a percussionist and offered him a position to perform with the corps throughout the country. He plans to join The Troopers at the appropriate time but decided that this summer would best be spent preparing for his freshman year at A&M.

“Marching band taught me how to commit to hard work. I put hours of practice into this activity I love, and I was able to reap the positive benefits from my practice,” Timothy said. “Marching band taught me a new level of commitment.”

As for his academic success, the administrative staff and teachers at Argyle have worked with Timothy since Kindergarten and have watched his journey as he has flourished into an extremely intelligent young man with plenty of talent. When not playing music, the focus of Timothy’s studies has revolved around math and science; he referred to his teachers as some of the most influential people in his life, specifically Chemistry teacher Kimberly Kass and UIL Math Coordinator and Algebra teacher Russell Perkins.

“I have the utmost respect for all the staff and teachers; they are world-class educators and have made a profound impact in my life,” Timothy said. “I can’t thank them enough.”

Another testament to Timothy’s character was his choice to volunteer as a junior counselor at Wyldlife, the middle school branch of the Christian organization, Young Life. His family has had an insurmountable amount of pride watching their son grow through his various activities, all the while keeping God at the forefront of his life.

Timothy plans to study Chemical Engineering in college, thanking Chemistry teacher Mrs. Kass for introducing him to the subject he found to be his calling and aspires to work for a semiconductor manufacturing company, such as Intel or
Texas Instruments.

“I will always appreciate how gracious the community of Argyle has been to me,” Timothy said. “I’m very excited about my future as an Aggie and for the paths that college may take me on.”
