Stanley’s Zach Temple named DeSoto’s 12th Grade Student of the Year

Zachary B. Temple is a senior at Stanley High School.  His parents are Brian and Sandra Temple.  He has one sister, Hannah Temple.  Being a senior who is about to graduate high school has caused him to look back on life and on the things that played a role in impacting his life.  Zach states three things that have shaped him:  faith, family, and the FFA.

“We’re proud to recognize Zach for this accomplishment,” said Dr. Cade Brumley, DeSoto Parish Superintendent. “He has worked hard and represented us well during his high school career.”

Faith plays a big role in Zach’s life.  Zach shared that at 10 years old, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  Being saved has given him a sense of confidence about how to handle the world.  Accepting Jesus didn’t guarantee that he wouldn’t struggle with things, but it did guarantee that he could get through it. 

Zach’s family plays the next biggest role in his life.  His family helped him decide major choices, and supported him through it all.  Choosing the right college is tough for someone to do.  Zach knew that this single choice will have a major impact on his life.  His family has been there to support him and remind him to do what is best for him. 

The next thing that impacted Zach’s life is kind of odd and does not sound like it belongs on this list, but it impacted his life just like the others. It was Stanley’s FFA chapter.  This was the first club Zach joined during high school.  He started freshman year when the FFA advisor asked him to say the FFA creed in a contest.  Zach did not make it past the area division, but it was a huge success for him considering he did not like public speaking at all.  This helped him break out of his shell and made him want to compete even more.  In FFA, Zach was able to compete in the State FFA Agriscience fair twice, and won first place in both fairs.  He was able to go to the National FFA Convention twice and finished in the top ten in the National FFA Agriscience Fair once.  He was also able to go to places like Indianapolis and Louisville, and even won a week-long trip to Washington DC because of FFA.

“Being involved in extra-curricular or co-curricular activities is a great support for a well-rounded student,” said Dr. Brumley. “I’m glad Zach took advantage of these opportunities and I believe it helped prepare him for college.” 

Zach said, “Looking at what I have done in life, I am excited about what comes next.  My life has just begun.  Graduation definitely makes me nervous, but the future makes me even more excited.”
