ECHS outstanding senior boy
Brandon Barborka, the son of Brad and Yvette Barborka, is the outstanding senior boy of the East Central class of 2012. He is in the top 10 percent of his graduating class. Brandon is diligent in his studies and has taken advantage of the more rigorous Advanced Placement classes that East Central High School offers.
He has been a member of National Honor Society his junior and senior years. He has been in the Colloquium (Gifted and Talented) program since his freshman year and continues to excel in his studies.
Brandon has not only applied himself in the classroom, but he is also very involved in his community and extracurricular activities as well. He was awarded Superintendent’s Student of the Month his junior year. He has been a member of the East Central Student Council all four years of high school, serving as president his senior year. He was also selected to lead as editor-in-chief of the school’s yearbook his sophomore and junior years, stepping down this year only because he had the honor of representing as a Student Council District XV officer.
Brandon was chosen to serve as one of 44 students out of the Texas Association of Student Councils for the TASC summer workshop. Brandon also enjoys helping others by volunteering to help at the local pet shelter, as well as volunteering at his family’s church. He has attended multiple leadership camps and conferences.
