The Dansker & Aspromonte Associates First Responder Scholarship was established to honor and assist students who have worked to help others. Brenden Gilbreath, who comes from a family of public servants and first responders, fits that bill perfectly.
Gilbreath’s parents, he wrote in his winning essay, met while working in law enforcement. His father was a sheriff’s deputy and his mother a dispatcher. Now, Brenden Gilbreath works alongside his Police Chief father in the Fayette County Emergency Management Office.
Gilbreath’s Future Plans
Responding to emergency situations and increasing public safety are not the only ways Brenden Gilbreath spends his time. A senior at Texas A&M Corpus Christi, he is on track to earn his bachelor’s degree in political science (with a minor in criminal justice) at the end of the year.
Following graduation, Gilbreath’s already got big plans. He aims to attend law school in Texas before becoming a prosecutor with his hometown’s county attorney’s office. He’s already interned at the Nueces County Attorney’s Office.
“These experiences gave me many valuable insights into a professional work environment and allowed me to prove that I can excel on the job after graduation,” he told representatives of Dansker & Aspromonte Associates.
For now, though, Gilbreath plans to put his political science knowledge to good use. “My dad hopes to put my political science major to use soon as he will be running for Fayette County Sheriff in the upcoming election,” he wrote.

The First Responder Scholarship
Dansker & Aspromonte established our First Responder Scholarship in order to highlight the important work that law enforcement, emergency services, and others do for injured people. As personal injury attorneys having an office at the World Trade Center on 9/11 and having handled many serious accidents cases over the years, we have seen the heroics and felt the importance of First Responders in our society.
Brenden Gilbreath is an example of someone who leverages his gifts and resources to help those who need it most. That’s why he’s a good fit for the First Responder Scholarship, and it’s why we’re excited to award him the $2,500 prize.
