Congratulations to Brandon Thompson from Cornell University for winning the College Category. Brandon Thompson, a junior at Cornell University, has been named the winner of the 2015 Gentlemen Showcase, earning a $500 scholarship and the title of 2015 Gentleman of the Year (College Category). With more than 2,000 votes, Brandon, who is current Chairman of the Cornell College Republicans, Director of Operations on the executive board of Cornell Faith and Action, and Captain of Cornell’s intramural soccer team, won this category. This is a great honor as there were 50 other nominations for college gentlemen.
“Brandon truly demonstrates what it means to be a gentleman, and has proven that chivalry is not dead,” said Laura Gundersen, Brandon’s nominator.
We asked Brandon how participating in The Gentlemen Showcase was significant to him and he replied:
It was a tremendous honor to be nominated for and participate in the Gentleman Showcase. The Network of enlightened Women is an exemplary organization and this Showcase proves that chivalry, even on college campuses, is not dead. I am truly blessed just to have been nominated with so many other outstanding college gentlemen who continue to live out their beliefs and make a difference in the lives of those around them.
