London High School Senior Andrew Brand is the February Rotary Student of the Month.
Students are selected by London High School administration based on the following criteria: academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Brand has a 4.33 grade-point average and is ranked second in his class. His favorite class is AP Calculus. He has been a member of the concert band for six years and marching band for five years. He is a four-year member of both the soccer and track and field teams. He has been in the spring musical four years, Quick Recall three years and fall play two years.
He was asked to name a school staff person who has served as an inspiration and he said, “I am inspired by my math teacher Mr. Clines because he makes math fun for me and helped me be very successful taking my AP Calculus test.”
Stephen Clines described Brand as “an extremely bright individual who has the unique ability to see both the small picture and the big picture.
“He is the rare student that can absorb material and apply it to subsequent problems. Andrew worked very hard to earn the highest score possible on the AP test and I feel he brought a lot of insight into our discussions on problems,” Cline said. “He will do great things down the road and be successful in whatever endeavor he chooses. I feel blessed to have had him as a student on multiple occasions.”
After graduation Brand plans to attend college to study engineering. He is the son of Julie Brand of London.
