In 8th grade, Lexi’s true love for drama and writing was brought to life by St. Barnabas’s very own Ms. Ashwood. After a creative writing assignment, Ms. Ashwood spoke with Lexi about her talent and encouraged her to continue writing. Lexi has done just that, and her assignment from Ms. Ashwood’s class was even recognized with a scholarship from the Atlantic Center of the Arts. Lexi Brandt attests to the dedication of all of St. Barnabas’ teachers and says that being the only student interested in drama in elementary school pushed her to be a leader and take charge for her unique passion. Lexi’s dedication and academic leadership are a wonderful inspiration and show the importance of teacher’s like those at St. Barnabas. Lexi’s determination to continue growing and become one of the best in her field at such a young age is also a wonderful reminder that we are capable of anything with ambition, dedication, and a passion for learning.
Congratulations Lexi! St. Barnabas is incredibly proud of you and we are so delighted to see your growth since graduation! We look forward to seeing your many successes in the years to come!
