Standout Student: Brooklyn Center’s Bryant Carachure
Teachers say Bryant Carachue is thriving at the Early College Academy (ECA) in Brooklyn Center. He believes the school is a perfect fit for him.
“I love it,” Carachure said. “It’s quite small but the teachers in here are really passionate about their jobs. They really help out the students so much, either one on one, or during class time.”
Besides taking classes at ECA, Carachue is enrolled at North Hennepin Community College. Teachers say it’s someone that his fellow students look up to.
“Bryant is going to be in charge of people,” said ECA teacher Christine Salokar. “He is going to lead people. He is going to set the momentum for the people around him, naturally and professionally.”
Serving on the School Board
Carachue is one of two student representatives on the Brooklyn Center School Board.
“I have not heard of it happening before,” Salokar said, who encouraged Carachue to apply for the position. “For us this is the first time students have been invited to be on our school board.”
Carachue says serving on the borad has been a game-changer.
“It’s very important to hear out the students,”Carachure said. “Because we can adjust some situations or do a little something new to either the high school or the academy.”
When Carachure finishes college he hopes to go into computer programming.
