Braswell Chappelle

Student Spotlight: Braswell Chappelle

Braswell ChappelleIt wasn’t easy at first for Braswell. He had a rough start as a freshman and struggled academically. Then he found out that he wasn’t alone. “I realized that my teachers would always be there for me, whenever I needed them.” He also started participating in all sorts of activities, including baseball, basketball, golf, and student government, where he is president. Today, he’s near the top of his class and received $70K in scholarships to attend the University of Arizona in the fall, where he’ll major in business administration. His dream is to start his own business and be a role model for young people. “I see that in my neighborhood, many people are doing the same thing, and there aren’t that many leaders. I want to motivate the younger students and give back to my community. I want to make a change.”
