    Brandon Simmons, a proud resident of the Hilltop, is a dedicated advocate for public education and community development. Brandon is a graduate of Columbus Alternative High School, where his passion for positive change was evident early on. During his high school years, Brandon used the power of our local media partners to spotlight the building conditions at Columbus Alternative High School where he successfully advocated for additional dollars to fund critical building improvements.

    A few years after graduating from Columbus Alternative High School, Brandon accepted the call to serve and successfully campaigned to run for a seat on the Columbus Board of Education. Brandon was elected in November of 2023 and is the youngest person ever to be elected to the Columbus Board of Education.
