A 2019 graduate of Todd County High School, Brandon was selected for a number of merit-based attributes including leadership, academic achievement, civic and extracurricular activities, and the motivation to serve and succeed.

Brandon’s activities include cross-country, track, yearbook, multimedia and graphic design. He has been accepted into the University of Southern California’s Dramatic Arts program for the fall of 2019.

“Golden West scholarships are awarded to students who excel in school and in the community,” says Golden West General Manager Denny Law. “We’re proud to help students like Brandon further their education and become a leader of tomorrow.”

Now in its 21st year, the Golden West Scholarship program promotes educational opportunity for students within the Golden West service area. The Wall-based company has given nearly 850 scholarships since the program began. Each year, Golden West awards $1,000 scholarships to 45 graduating seniors, one for each high school in the Golden West exchanges plus one at-large scholarship.
