A Step Above: Dallin Bryan

Coronado High School
Class of 2014
G.P.A.: 4.8

Dallin Bryan epitomizes the all around “stand-up” guy. He’s comfortable in his own skin, smart enough to think for himself and willing to make the tough choices in Einstein-esque “what’s right is not always popular” style. He’s the guy you want in your corner. It would be easy to look at Dallin’s track record and assume that grades and sports define him, but in fact there’s something much deeper and exponentially more important to his resume. It’s his character. Dallin stands for kindness, integrity and responsibility and those qualities are what truly place him – A Step Above.

Your goals and aspirations are pretty well thought out! “I hope to graduate as a valedictorian and leave my mark on this school’s history.  I would like to be remembered as a kind friend to all who brightened people’s days. I then plan on serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, attend BYU on scholarship (hopefully), and eventually Stanford Business College for my MBA. In 10 years I see myself having a small, happy family.  I see myself as a young business owner striving to serve his fellow man and provide for his wife and kids.”

Of all that you’ve accomplished, there’s one thing that stands out: “I am most proud of my Eagle Scout award.  It took a lot of hard work and dedication through countless hours of merit badges, but the skills and the life lessons I learned in the scouting program have forever changed me. I will never be able to repay the debt I owe to the scouting program for shaping me into a man.”

Is there someone you look up to? “I look up to my brother, Logan.  I have strived to model my high school career as much after him as I possibly can. He was in Student Council, I’m in Student Council.  He was Student Body Treasurer, I’m the Student Body Treasurer. He was a valedictorian, I’m on track to be a valedictorian. He couldn’t have set a better example for me to follow, and I will be eternally indebted to him for that.”

Favorite quote to live by: “My favorite quote to live by is “Come what may and love it!”  It basically means no matter what happens in your life, love it!  Smile!  Have a positive attitude!  Though one can acknowledge the hardships and trials in one’s life, they can choose how those will affect them and what attitude they will exhibit.  Every day can be the best day of your life, if you choose to “Come what may and love it!”
