After all, he’s an honors student who wrote a letter to himself as a freshman, imploring himself to graduate with a 4.0 grade-point average. He’s a standout athlete, starring on the court for the Mustang tennis squad. And he’s got a hankering for civic engagement — to come up with ways to make life a little better for others.
