The Christophers are proud to share this touching testimonial from Brandon Gosselin, our first prize winner of the 2019 College Video Contest. Back in 2013, newly graduated from his Oklahoma high school and poised to attend the college of his dreams, Brandon discovered how one moment could truly change your life forever when he met with a terrible accident involving a four-wheeler and a wandering deer. Despite all the physical and mental health setbacks this accident brought him, Brandon, true to the name of his award-winning film, “never gave up,” and he credits the Christophers with helping him to achieve as much as he has in his college career, a career he is still faithfully pursuing, as he is currently finishing up his doctorate in strategic leadership.
