English teacher Kerry Johnson said, “Brenna is one organized student. When she knew she was going to be gone, she always got her work and often finished it before she left. If she had a paper assignment due in a week, she would ask after two days if she could hand it in early. She just always stays on top of her work. Her work is always very complete too; she does a great job. She also can be like a sponge; she wants to truly understand what she is being taught and is not afraid to ask for help. I enjoyed having her in class. Congrats!”

Career and technical educator Stephen Funk said, “Brenna leads by example in the classroom and is an extremely hard worker. The quality and punctuality of her work is second to none.” Choir director and speech coach Leandra Craigmile said, “I have had the honor of working with Brenna Behrens for three years as a choir student and speaker. I am so proud to see how much Brenna has bloomed in the years I have had her. She has really stepped up this year in both choir and Speech as a leader. Her humility, down-to-earth, and no-nonsense nature has been essential to our choir and is so welcome. I am confident that no matter what Brenna pursues in the future she will succeed and thrive.”

Pool teacher Todd Fritze wrote, “Brenna is well deserved of this award. She is a great kid to have in class and does impeccable work. When seeing Brenna in the halls, she always has a smile and a positive attitude.”
