Induction Class of 2011

 

1985-1989

Justin Brittain

Varsity lettered in Soccer, Track and Cross Country.

Justin received numerous awards and honors and most notably was named Hornet of the Year his senior year. His athletic ability is best illustrated by the fact that more than a decade following his graduation he still maintains the school track record in the 1600 Meter Run with a time of 4 minutes and 25.8 seconds. What makes this record exceptional is the fact that Justin was involved in a life changing accident that left him impaired with seizures that he was unable to predict. These limitations would have precluded an average individual from participating in the demands of most sporting events. But Justin was no ordinary individual. He overcame these limitations and went on to not only set records but was also able to participate in a variety of sports.

His passion for running helped him overcome his adversity and he not only excelled at running but was considered to be a team player and always encouraged his fellow students to overcome their limitations and strive to be the best that they could be. He was a true example of sportsmanship and character both on and off the field.

The fact that Justin donated his time to coaching younger players demonstrates his commitment to giving back to his community. His coaching taught the players more than just the game of basketball it also taught them about the importance of being responsible and dependable and the rare skill of never giving up and doing the very best you can do.

Justin made a significant contribution to not only sports but to the quality of being a giving and contributing citizen of the community. He was a role model and inspiration to many coming of age in high school and meeting the challenges that one faces as they transition from a teenager to an adult.

Justin’s accomplishments has outlived his short but significant life and he lives on through the Justin Brittain Memorial Scholarship Fund. Each year the fund provides students with scholarships for athletic and artistic achievement at Monroe Elementary and High School. These funds are used to expand the learning opportunities of students. Through this fund Justin’s life and accomplishments live on in the hopes and dreams of students each year.
