At only thirteen years old, Brandon Gipson may be one of the youngest Hometown Heroes, but, he possesses maturity, compassion, dedication, and selflessness not often seen in someone his age. Brandon has already been recognized by his middle school for his kindness towards and support of his fellow classmates with special needs. Brandon has helped collect food for a local food drive.

In the aftermath of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, Brandon Gipson eagerly volunteered to pack boxes with food and clothes for the Katrina Relief Fund at his neighborhood recreation center.

Thirteen-year old Brandon Gipson is an exceptional young man, a terrific son, and truly a Hometown Hero.
