Ryan Brandt of Apex High School has been awarded the 2015 Philip Watts Scholarship, which recognizes an outstanding Wake County Public Schools senior student of German.
Offered since 1986, the $1,500 scholarship honors the memory of Philip Campbell Watts, who was an eminent language teacher at Broughton High School in Raleigh.
Ryan was nominated by his German instructor, Paul Maseman. By graduation, Ryan will have completed five years of German. He has maintained a 4.0 grade point average across the curriculum in high school.
Ryan has also excelled as a musician, playing both piano and trumpet. He plans to attend N.C. State University this fall as a physics major.
