The male recipient of the 2020 Young Christian Award is Brandon Mehringer, son of Lori and Todd Mehringer of Jasper. Throughout his time at Holy Trinity Catholic School, Brandon was a student that excelled in and out of the classroom. His positive attitude and respect for others were two of his strongest character traits. Brandon was involved in numerous extracurricular activities, such as Student Ambassadors, Builders Club, Academic Bowl, Boy Scouts, band, soccer and basketball.
