When not busy with academic and extracurricular activities, Brittney is active in her community. She has tutored high school students, participated in the ROTC Food Drive, and assisted with the Skills USA Adopt-A-Family project. Brittney also volunteered at the Veterans Day Ceremony. She donated the Pretty Little Liars series to the high school library and the Twilight series to the Wilson County Public Library.
