Quote from teacher:

“Brodie Rassler is a student who embodies what we mean at Southwest when we talk to students about living ‘Above the Line.’ As a student, Brodie works to be an influential member of each of his classes. He seeks out opportunities to include others, especially those who are not his typical friends, and brings a sense of fun and hard work to his work. He is conscientious about meeting his responsibilities in class and outside the classroom. Brodie is a student who has met the challenges of last spring and this fall with a positive attitude.” — Starr Kloskin
