Iain Lanphier is a senior at Brophy College Preparatory and interning at the Brophy Community Foundation.

“Brophy College Preparatory has helped me learn, grow, and refine my knowledge and skills in academics, leadership, athletics, and in service as a Man for Others during these past four years.  I am grateful for the support provided by the Brophy Community Foundation, which made my experience as a Bronco possible, specifically allowing me access to resources and faculty that helped facilitate my success and preparation for my goal of attending a service academy.
