Brynn Warren had a banner senior year at Legacy Christian Academy.
Her 4.49 GPA earned her the honor of valedictorian of the Class of 2022. But scholarship is not Brynn’s only gift; she’s also an athlete: In softball, Brynn and her teammates took home the TAPPS 5A Division 2 State Championship. And her gifts aren’t limited to scholarship and athletics, either. She’s also a talented artist: she gained recognition in the Young American Talent exhibition and received other accolades. Rounding out her already outstanding résumé, Brynn is also an exceptional leader.
Brynn was a member of the National Honor Society, and “being named valedictorian is well-deserved recognition for her,” says Kara Hermogeno, Brynn’s adviser and dean of Legacy’s School of Engineering and Technology.
When she was a freshman, several of her friends encouraged Brynn to give softball a try, even though she had never played the sport. As a junior, she was named Most Improved Player, and she ended up playing varsity softball for four years.
In art, Brynn took first place in Legacy’s AP Art showcase in back-to-back years and as a senior attained a perfect score on her Advanced Placement Art portfolio. She has also been recognized as “outstanding student of the year in art.” Mrs. Blackburn, the AP Art teacher, praised Brynn’s work ethic: “Brynn worked tirelessly throughout this past year, as she has in previous years, often getting up before dawn or working late on her very detailed pieces. I’m so happy her hard work has paid off.”
Brynn’s character is also exceptional: “She leads with humility, honesty, and integrity,” says Mrs. Hermogeno. Her fellow students have over the years recognized Brynn with the Christian Leadership award and twice with a Servant’s Heart Award. Brynn was active in LEAD Legacy and was the Service chair.
Says a classmate, “Brynn is constantly focused on others, whether it’s serving during events or leading our Service team. She’s the definition of servant-hearted.” Outside of the classroom, Brynn also displays her servant’s heart: She volunteers at her church, with various charitable organizations, and in care homes.
“While it’s good to do hard things and set goals for ourselves,” Brynn said in her valedictory speech, “what's the point if we find no joy in them? I believe we find success when we use our individual talents and interests to glorify God. God didn’t design us to have all of the same interests and talents; rather, he created us to find joy in following our own unique passion.”
In the fall, this extraordinary young woman is heading to Baylor.
