This honor was based on his outstanding performance of the Texas High School All-State Music. He is the only 7th grader that qualified.

Brady also made 1st Chair All City Band and outstanding soloist in the solo contest. Next year as an 8th grader, he will be leading the Quads in the drum line. He plays the drums, Marimba and other percussion instruments. Brady is a very talented musician and we are very proud of him.

Brady’s Dad, Tom, played drums in the Lexington High School Band under the direction of Dalton Harbors and still plays for his church Praise Band.

Brady is the grandson of Judy Greenwald of Lexington. His aunt and uncle, Matthew and Brandi Knippa, also live in Lexington.
