Lassiter High Suits Up For Superhero Day In Support of Sophomore Brandon Carpenter


Lassiter High School students went to infinity and beyond Friday, April 26, as the school celebrated “Brandon Carpenter Superhero Day.” Brandon, a sophomore at Lassiter High School with muscular dystrophy, has always been a fan of Marvel Comics and superheroes. To show their support of Brandon, Lassiter students and staff dressed in superhero attire and welcomed him to school on Friday morning with an inspiring round of applause. Students created posters of encouragement and posted cheerful door decorations throughout the hallways of the building. Brandon was treated to a special breakfast where he was celebrated for his “superhero strength!” Some of the guests spotted in the crowd were Brandon’s family, Lassiter cheerleaders, Lassiter String Ensemble, the Chick-fil-A Cow, Principal Dr. Chris Richie, and fellow Lassiter students and staff. A big thank you to Lassiter teacher, Cathy Zingler, for organizing this spectacular day for Brandon Carpenter!
