WINCHESTER — The hobbies of Millbrook High School senior Logan Apple are a varied bunch, but it’s difficult to top his interest in fractal art, in which he essentially creates art out of math.
He’s even won an international award for one of his pieces. It’s complicated, but that’s also just Apple’s style.
Tied for first in his class of 317 at Millbrook, Logan has worked tirelessly to maintain a 4.65 GPA and still manage to participate in Future Business Leaders of American; the Technology Student Association, Academic Team, National Honor Society, History Club, Coding Club and the Youth Leadership Council.
Logan has also served in various leadership roles, such as president of the Future Business Leaders of America, captain of the Academic Team, president of his senior class and the Millbrook representative for the Youth Leadership Council.
But then there’s his interest and participation in old-style sword fighting and archery.
Last year, Logan developed a computer game for a Future Business Leaders of America competition and won first prize in the state.
The game was later published at the International Game Market and in another venue in January.
The game itself is a puzzle-based platform, Logan explained.
“It’s made to be a game without monsters, anything like that,” he said. “It’s made to be a very intellectual-style game; you’re made to solve puzzles and discover the world around you and discover your lost memories.”
The 18-year-old son of Theresa and Todd Apple, Logan is headed next year to the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., where he will study for a career in computer science research.
He may continue to dabble in computer game design as a hobby.
Logan said that juggling a hectic schedule and numerous activities puts him in a prime position to handle potential adversity in the future.
“I think management skills are going to be important because you become independent,” Logan said. “You get this sense of freedom and that responsibility of being able to manage your own time is just incredibly important.”
