Waskom High School graduate Dallas Loyd has already achieved a lot in his short life. In fact, this student not only participated in the FFA, but he has owned his own cattle herd the past several years. Now, after watching his mother fight MS, Dallas is doing a little creative planning to help others like his mother. “After researching the disease, listening to my mom, and seeing how it affects her, I know without a doubt I want to be a physical therapist and specialize in MS,” he says. “Additionally, I have researched how cattle can have a positive impact with MS patients. With my love for cattle and my desire to help others, I hope to combine cattle, physical therapy and MS to provide assistance to those in need.” To put this plan in motion, Dallas will work to obtain his Bachelor’s in health sciences from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches.
