Gramercy Christian School - Brandon Bowers

Brandon Bowers


BIOGRAPHY:
My name is Brandon Bowers and I am graduating from Gramercy Christian School which I have attended since first grade. I have one older brother who recently graduated from the United States Naval Academy and is currently training to be a Navy Pilot. My father is a retired Master Gunnery Sergeant from the United States Marine Corps, and my mother is a teacher at Gramercy. Like my brother and my father, I plan to serve in the military, though not in the Marine Corps or Navy; while I have received the NROTC Scholarship to NC State and have been accepted to UNC Chapel-Hill, I have also received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point and thus plan to attend this summer and pursue a career as an Army Officer.

At Gramercy, I have served as Chaplain, Vice President, and President in the Junior and Senior National Beta Clubs and Chaplain and President of the Student Government. I have also been the Worship Band Leader for 3 years in addition to playing lead guitar for my church Worship team for 5 years. I have played Varsity Soccer for 7 years and received All- State Honors five times and State MVP twice. I have also played Varsity Basketball for 3 years and was named Rookie of the Year and Best Defensive Player in 2009 and 2013. I was also a member of Carteret Sports Leadership. I have also taken part in the local Poetry Out Loud Competition and was a member of the Mathematics team which has placed the last 3 years at the Eastern Carolina Math Competition.

It’s hard to believe I will not be attending the place that I have called home for the last 12 years. Gramercy has meant so much to me. Every person I have known through Gramercy has helped me in some way, and, for that, I am forever grateful. I have had good times and times that I have struggled over the years, and I regret neither because they have made me who I am today. I thank my family, friends, and most of all my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for bringing me to where I am today.
