Congratulations to junior Benjamin Colby Elliott for being chosen as Brunswick Academy’s Underclassman Student of the Month for March 2021! Colby is the son of Mike and Kay Elliott of Brodnax. His brother, Hunter, is a 2017 graduate of Brunswick Academy.
Colby is a successful student in the Academic program. His dedication to achieving impressive grades has earned him membership into Brunswick Academy’s chapter of the National Honor Society. In addition to his academic life, Colby involves himself at Brunswick Academy in other ways. Since the 6th-grade, Colby has played school baseball. In addition, he has enjoyed being a part of Brunswick Academy’s Fishing Team.
When not busy at school, Colby serves as an active member of Boy Scout Troop 221 and is currently working towards his Eagle Scout rank. Between school, sports, and his work with the Boy Scouts, Colby stays very busy. However, he somehow finds the time to work a part-time job, too. If he has spare time, Colby will be found outside either hunting or fishing.
During his upcoming senior year, Colby plans to enroll in the Career & Technical Education program through Southside Virginia Community College to earn a certification in welding. After graduation in 2022, he plans to attend SVCC initially and then transfer to an undecided college to study forestry.
