I hope that our school keeps moving forward and that the world will realize how unique we are.”
Brown not only cares about the betterment of Henrico High School, but he also wants to help the world. He volunteers a lot in his community. He is a Regional Teen Officer for Jack and Jill of America where he helps their chapters and region raise money for the foundation.
