A senior at Taylor High School, Brandon Fremin has spent the last four years of his education achieving an impressive resume of accomplishments. From academics to athletics, as well as extracurricular activities, Brandon has established a reputation of respect and admiration from his teachers and peers.

An Advanced Placement (AP)Scholar with Honors, Brandon represented Taylor High School at the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference and Texas Boys State. He is a delegate on the Principal’s Advisory Committee and is on the Katy ISD Superintendent’s Roundtable. Brandon was named Student of the Year in Pre-AP Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, Chemistry, AP Physics 1 and Biology.

Brandon found his niche in mathematics, as his cumulative average is a 101 in BC Calculus, and he currently holds the Taylor High School record for most perfect test scores in a single year. He is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society and student council, as well as a four-year class president. Brandon is also an inductee into the National Society of High School Scholars.

Brandon has thoroughly enjoyed learning from all of his teachers. One of his most enjoyable teachers has been Katie Statham, who taught Pre-Calculus his junior year. Brandon recalled, “She is truly a master of her craft. She not only knows her subject matter, but she is well versed in all of the avenues that branch from it. She put up with my frequent questions, talked with me about the Astros and taught me how to pay attention to the minute details.” Brandon values this profound quote: “A bird sitting in a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings.”

In addition to his academic assets, Brandon is a team captain and has been the starting catcher for the past three years for the Taylor Varsity Baseball Team. He received the Division 6A All District Academic, Varsity Athletic Award and All District Honorable Mention Catcher. Brandon is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the co-founder and secretary of the Future Engineers of America Club.

His leadership skills are insightful. “There is an unparagoned joy that rushes through my veins when someone is genuinely happy. I love tutoring people and seeing that epiphany in their eyes when the aimless clamor of knowledge becomes a symphony. I’m fulfilled by the happiness of others, and I don’t think you have to be a leader to help others. I notice this in baseball all of the time. You don’t have to have a flamboyant title to be a leader. You just have to be yourself, be confident, respect others and smile often.”

Brandon has many great memories of his high school career. “I can’t thank Taylor High School enough for the experiences and opportunities it has given me. I will treasure my time spent with the beautiful Anna Yammine, a person who makes me better each and every day, as well as my time spent in the baseball program with my baseball brothers. We’ve laughed, sweated, cried and competed together for the last four years, and now we are starting new chapters in our lives. Several of us are lucky enough to be playing in college, and as our senior year winds down, we are truly cherishing every moment.”

Brandon will attend Johns Hopkins University next fall and major in mechanical engineering. He will also play baseball at Johns Hopkins. Congratulations on your undeniable spirit and generous heart Brandon, and good luck as you embark on the next phase of your exciting life.
