Eighth grader Braden Jurrells from Danielson Middle School is the Leander ISD Fine Arts Student of the Week. 

Braden is a dedicated student in the Danielson Varsity Tenor Bass Choir. He has been a member of the Region Choir in both seventh and eighth grade. In addition to his participation in varsity choir, Braden takes private voice lessons.

Choir Director Stephanie Rayl said that Braden is a hardworking and talented member of the choral program.

“Braden is a leader in his section, both vocally and as an example for others,” Rayl said. “He is also involved in multiple activities outside of choir and is a great example of a student participating in the fine arts, athletics and academics and successfully balancing these obligations.”

Not only is Braden committed to choir, but he is also a member of the eighth grade basketball team, all while balancing his academic obligations.
