Dulles High School “successfully prepares all students for the 21st century by
building character, developing technology skills and creating lifelong learners through a tradition of excellence and rich cultural diversity.” The teachers and administration at this Fort Bend ISD high school graduate seniors of the highest
caliber of education. One senior who has a great passion for learning and an impressive resumé is Aman Patel.

Aman is a student at the Math and Science Academy. He is a straight “A” scholar in all Advanced Placement (AP) and honors level classes. His discipline has brought him to achieve unprecedented success every year of his high school career. Since his freshman year, Aman has been a member of Dulles High School Physics Bowl Team and placed first in the Texas and New Mexico Region. This past year, his team placed third in the United States, and Aman placed 96th in individual score globally.

200-aman1As a member of the Dulles High School National Science Bowl Team for the past two years, Aman and his team placed first at the Texas A&M Regional and seventh at the national competition this year. Aman also placed first in science in both the University Interscholastic League and Texas Math and Science Coaches Association (TMSCA) state science competitions and achieved high scores in both Biology and Chemistry Olympiads. At the Academic World Quest this year, Aman placed first at the regional competition. He is the recipient of the National Geographic Learning’s AP Student of the Year Award.

In addition to his commitment to academics, Aman plays competitive tennis and is a recreational cello player. He is also devoted to school clubs and activities. He is the founder and president of SciNOW Club. This organization supports high school students in starting after-school science enrichment programs at local elementary schools with the mission of cultivating a lifelong interest in science. Last year, the club served over 120 students.

200-aman3When asked what value he lives by, Aman said, “I always make it a point to engage in activities I am passionate about. I love science, community service and sports, and as a result, these are very important parts of my life. Although my schedule is extremely busy, I look forward to and enjoy every activity.”

Aman is vice president of the Science National Honor Society and an inducted member of Mu Alpha Theta, Spanish Honor Society and National Honor Society. Aman said, “Many experiences go into truly becoming a leader, and one of the most fulfilling parts of leadership is the ability to share those experiences with others. Regardless of the activity – whether it is teaching science to elementary school students, organizing a district-wide science competition or representing Dulles High School at a national event – leadership necessitates a huge personal investment. When the outcome is favorable, however small, the resulting feeling is unparalleled.”

In his free time, Aman is engaged in several enrichment activities. He is a tutor, a member of the Fort Bend Astronomy Club and a volunteer at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. He is also involved in research relating to malaria at the University of Houston.

Aman plans to major in a scientific field and is currently narrowing down which college he will attend. Congratulations on your extensive accomplishments Aman, and good luck in your future endeavors.
