Sam Duggan, son of Stephen and Candace Duggan, is a junior at Ravenwood High School and this week’s Student of the Week.
He is a member of DECA, Mu Alpha Theta, Interact Club, and his home church’s youth group. He was a member of Middle Tennessee State University’s True Blue 100 and won the NSLC Grand Engineering Challenge Competition.
Computers are one of Duggan’s biggest passions.
“They are so complex and yet they are confined into tiny boxes,” he said.
His favorite class at RHS is Calculus BC with Mr. Lowen.
“It’s such a complex math and it requires me to think differently,” he said.
Duggan said that when he thinks of role models in his life, his father, mother, and grandfather are the most prevalent ones.
“They are both very committed to doing what’s right,” he said of his father and grandfather. He added, “My mom has devoted so much time to raising three boys and I look up to her.”
Andrew Tomlinson said of him, “Sam and I are both new to RHS this year, him transferring from Centennial and myself from Franklin. Sam was able to gain some great CAD experience from his first year of class at Centennial. He has been such a great blessing in class, working with the other students to help them with the program and their drawings, which has been a huge help to me.”
After graduating from RHS next year, he plans to attend college to study aerospace engineering.
