Making a Difference
Brandon Kilgore is a shining example of an individual with developmental disabilities that advocates for other people with disabilities. Graduating from Meadowdale High School in 2007, Brandon immediately started attending Kuntz Center where he chose to develop his work skills and participate in meaningful activities. Brandon made it clear that he was an ambitious young man, eager to be independent in all areas of his life.
As a highly independent man, Brandon has no problems sharing that he takes care of his medical appointments, uses RTA, rides project mobility, uses a cell phone, is an active member in church and loves to be out in the community. In 2003, Brandon underwent a successful kidney transplant from his mother, Tammi Bell. Unfortunately, Tammi was diagnosed with cancer and sadly passed away in 2009, but they remained close until her passing. Brandon uses challenging situations like this to encourage others to keep going and do the best that he can and throughout, he’s remained positive and motivated to accomplish his personal goals.
Currently, Brandon is employed at Kuntz Center and URS. He’s also the president of the MCBDDS Advocacy Council in which he attends the Listening session with the Superintendent and other advocacy representatives. Brandon continues to participate in the community by volunteering to help teenagers with homework after school at the East End Community Center. Brandon is also highly active in the church choir at St. John’s Baptist Church. In 2011 he participated in a Community Advocacy event as well as the People First conference in 2010.
Brandon’s self-determination continues to develop and grow. He advocates for himself and for others. His goal has always been to improve his quality of life while not offending anyone. Brandon continues to make a positive impact wherever he goes.
