David Mitchell Lang graduated from Resurrection in 2013 and is currently living in West University in Houston, Texas. Mitch attended Mississippi State University where he majored in Biochemistry. After graduating from MSU, he went onto Medical School at the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) to obtain his MD. He is currently working as a Neurology Resident at Baylor College of Medicine. Mitch married Brianna “Bri” Lang in June of 202, and he says this was the best decision of his life. He and his wife have a Goldendoodle named Roux, who is a big light in their life. Mitch says that Roux definitely keeps them busy and entertained.
Mitch attended Resurrection from Pre-K all the way through high school, so he acquired many memories along the way. Soccer was a big part of his life at Resurrection, especially when the team made it to the State Championship during his eighth grade year. Having his father and his Uncle Tony as his coaches during a formative time in his life was special to him and something that he says he took for granted. He also enjoyed cross country, running the foosball table in the senior lounge with his good friend Charles, creating various video projects, and learning from ACE teachers.
One of the main ways Mitch was affected by Catholic education and being raised Catholic was learning how to treat others. Having religious values instilled in him early on- such as clichés like the “Golden Rule”- impacted the way he saw the world and how he now treats his patients. Always reminding himself that everyone is a child of God is something he learned at RCS and that he uses in his daily work.
His advice to current students of Resurrection is to stay curious and ask questions about things you don’t understand or things that interest you. He says, “Life will rarely be boring if you have a question that needs answering.”
