Brandon Stuckey is the son of a 24-year active duty member of the Mississippi Army National Guard and veteran of the Iraq War. As both a student and an athlete, he has always strived to do his best in the classroom and on the field, graduating with honors near the top of his class and playing varsity football for his school. Additionally, during his free time, Brandon served as a member of his community’s volunteer fire department.
As a volunteer fire fighter and emergency medical responder, Brandon has stepped up to protect and serve his community in ways other high school students normally would not. He has devoted many hours of his personal time to training for emergencies so that in a time of crisis, he is prepared to protect and serve, saving the lives and property of his neighbors.
Brandon was inspired by his father’s service to our country and is compelled to serve our nation and protect the freedoms valued by its citizens, doing so while enrolled at Mississippi State University through his participation in the ROTC program. He plans to one day lead as an officer in the Army. Brandon is majoring in forestry with studies in wildlife and fisheries and aspires to use this knowledge to protect the nation’s wildlife and forests so they can be enjoyed by future generations.
