Brandman University's Official Blog

Reneisha Wilkes is a One Stop service representative at the Central Administration building in Irvine. Helping students is a rewarding job, she says. That's no surprise to those who know her well - in fact, she's spent most of her adult life helping others. Reneisha is truly an inspiration. Among the many other ways she helps others in need, Reneisha set up a ride-share program to help Veterans get to doctor appointments and to the grocery store. She has been recognized by the California Senate for her service to the community, and she was named Volunteer of the Year by Ellen DeGeneres. Watch the video for her story.

Mr. Brandman was a successful Orange County businessman who founded the Brandman Foundation. After his passing in 2008, Joyce took over as the President of the Foundation. The Brandman's made a very generous gift to the university, which is why our institution is named Brandman University. Brandman Hub was there for the dedication and Joyce was kind enough to share a few words with us. See the video below.
