Peter Allen Maughan, Issaquah High School Class of 2011

Peter has spent his year since graduation at Brigham Young University (BYU). In the next decade, he plans to live in Veracruz, Mexico, for two years while serving as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When he returns, he plans to enter the finance program at BYU's Marriott School of Business.

In high school, Peter said one of the most important skills he learned was how to really listen, which has helped him at universitiy because he is able to absorb information more quickly. He advises current high school students: "If you want something you should go out and do it—people regret things that they don't do more often than things that they have done."
