Hello! My name is Brittany LeSerra.
I would like to start off by saying thank you to the members of The Gulf Coast Athletic
Club for recognizing me as one of the Scholar Athletes at Gulf Shores High School.
As the youngest in my class, I am in the top 5% with a 4.1 GPA, am enrolled in AP level and dual enrollment college classes, and will graduate with the highest degree offered, "Honors with Distinction”.
My athletic career started when I was a little girl playing basketball, softball, and soccer for recreational league teams. Upon entering high school my love for sports followed me. I started out my freshman and sophomore year by playing basketball and softball. During my junior year not only did I play basketball, but I developed an interest in golf and decided to join the team. I immediately excelled in this sport and went to Regionals. This year I am a team captain for the varsity basketball team and am expected to go to Regionals again for golf. Not only do I play sports, but for the past 3 years I have been an assistant boys basketball coach at our local Rec center.
I am very active at Gulf Shores High School and participate in organizations such as:
Key Club, National Honors Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Friends with
Exceptional Children, and FCCLA. I also volunteer my time by running our school’s
Dolphin Cafė, and serving food in our school cafeteria.
Outside of school I participate in the Gulf Shores Police Explorers Academy and am currently the commanding officer. I love to give back to my community by volunteering at different sporting events, hosting NAIA soccer teams and helping with AVCA sand volleyball.
My involvement in the community has restored beauty to the environment through the Coastal Cleanup and habitat restoration on Robinson and Bird Islands. I help to provide a safe habitat for citizens too by assisting the Gulf Shores Police Department with the Citizens Academy and National Night Out. I have also helped with multiple city, chamber, and private events and festivals. My dedication to the community is recognized through my tireless volunteer service. Each year I give back at least 100 hours.
I am extremely thankful for my parents Braswell and Tara McMeans. They are the ones who shaped me to be the well rounded person I am today. They have taught me to work hard to achieve my goals, give back to my community, and that education comes first.
Learning is a lifelong lesson and I still have a lot to learn; that is why I am pursing a
major in Criminal Justice. I plan to attend the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the fall, and then go on to pursue my dream of becoming a crime scene investigator.
Thank you again for considering me as one of the Scholar Athletes.
