THE POWER OF MUSIC

During his time at Stephenson High School, Khaden was involved with the Men of Distinction, the Stephenson “Sonic Sound” Marching Band as a drum major, and the Stephenson Wind Ensemble, serving as the Lead Trombone Player.

 

"I love to play the trombone because music heals me", said Brown. "Playing an instrument forces you to use both sides of your brain which will enhance your reasoning skills and memory. I am developing my brain at an early age and I am able to process multiple things at once. For me, music also reduces my stress level and it keeps me occupied...Most importantly, I enjoy making music."

Aside from music, Khaden devotes much of his time serving in the community. Khaden has spent time volunteering with the Stephenson Community Angels and HOSEA Feed the Homeless.

"Because I know the importance of community service and making a positive impact on others around me, I mentor younger students at my school", Brown said. "Several individuals have assisted me throughout my high school years, and I want to pass it forward by assisting younger students at my school."

Further speaking to the indelible mark Brown leaves wherever he goes, Mr. Mario Miner said, "I can firmly say that his presence in our school, his unbelievable work ethic, determination and passion for assisting others, has positively impacted his peers, our school and our community."

Exemplifying all the qualities of a servant leader, Brown is surely poised to be a world changer.
