Meet Cooper Michalski, one of the newest grads from Flower Mound High School. Cooper is the youngest of 3 boys and has always been heavily involved in his school and community. He has been a member of the English Honor Society, Student Council, and Circle of Friends throughout his 4 years of high school. Cooper has also made many friends and grown in his faith because of his time spent at St. Ann’s church. In school, he loved playing football until he got injured his sophomore year—so he began to film the games as a way to still be involved. Through that experience, he discovered his passion for film and media and now even considers the injury a blessing.
Cooper will be attending the University of Arkansas in the fall to pursue Broadcast Journalism. Arkansas has a wonderful student coming their way, and while Flower Mound is sad to see you go, we’re happy that you call us home. Woo pig!
