He currently is ranked seventh in a class of 244 seniors. Brown is a diligent and conscientious student who is able to integrate his mathematical knowledge with common sense to come up with creative ways to solve difficult problems.
Outside school, Brown demonstrated a fierce drive and dedication to earn the Eagle Scout rank during his freshman year.

He participates in food drives, works in soup kitchens and tutors younger students.
