In his 13 years at Lausanne, senior Gregory Brannick ’18 found every opportunity to better himself. He took the advantage of his environment and ran with it, literally.
Greg has been a member of the Lausanne varsity boys soccer team throughout his Upper School years. With Greg’s help at center forward and midfielder, the team won the school’s first ever state championship in boys soccer.
“It was surreal. We went from being kind of a joke to state champions,” Greg recalled. “Coach Lima really turned our program around.”
Soccer isn’t the only area where Greg is involved at Lausanne. He also runs cross country, is a member of the Yacht Club and Ultimate Frisbee Club. Greg was also crowned Homecoming King this past January after being nominated and voted on by his peers.
Originally from Sosnovy Bor, Russia, it was important to Greg’s family that he go to an international school. He has been afforded opportunities to develop a new worldview and has taken advantage of the global mindset at Lausanne. This past summer, Greg traveled to Quebec with several of his classmates for a French immersion trip.
In the classroom, as a part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, Greg is designing and building a sand pit for Lausanne athletes to use for speed and agility training for his Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS) Project . It’s important to him that he leaves Lausanne better tomorrow than it is today.
“I’ve seen a lot of change over my 13 years here, and it has all been for the better,” said the graduating senior. “In so many ways, my teachers and peers at Lausanne have become my second family. I am grateful for the opportunity to attend here and better myself for the future.”
