Shannon King, Social Studies Teacher, said, “Victoria Doan is a delight both in class and as an individual. She always has a ready smile upon her face and is quick to offer her expertise in a number of matters. In addition to Victoria’s excellent academic work, she was awarded the status of an AP Scholar after earning a 3 or higher on at least three different AP exams by the end of her junior year. Victoria is only one of two of our seniors to be awarded this honor this year by the CollegeBoard Advanced Placement group. Victoria’s achievement places her in a selective group of students worldwide who have earned this honor: this achievement will also be noted on any scores sent by CollegeBoard to requested universities. I have very much enjoyed having Victoria in my history classes and look forward to seeing what new honors and adventures Victoria has in her future.”

Angela Motomura, Math Teacher, said, “Victoria is a very hard worker and a conscientious student. Her dedication to her education is inspiring. She is well deserving of this honor.”

Cathy Riley, English Department Chair and Director of Bridge City Strutters, said, “Victoria Doan is the most dependable young lady I have ever encountered in my teaching career. I came to know Victoria when she tried out for the Bridge City High School Strutters Drill Team, and I taught her in my English III AP class. It was in that class that she volunteered her talent and time to our Vietnam Memorial project that undertook man hours of creative planning. Victoria demonstrates a positive influence on others uncompromising her morals and integrity, and is an outstanding role model for others to emulate. Victoria strives to go to college and major in biology or chemistry and seeks to enter medical school to become a radiologist. Her career goal is to research how radiation affects the human body and find a way to cure cancer with as little side effects as possible. I am so proud of Victoria Doan – I look forward to hearing of her stellar successes in the future because I know one thing about Victoria – and that is – she will make a positive difference in others’ lives.”

When asked about her future plans, Victoria said, “After high school, I strive to major in Biology, and then research in medicine.”
