This Month’s Alumni Council Member Profile
Beau O’Dell - Class of 2006/Leadership Council, 2018-2019
Beau O’Dell, class of 2006 is married to his wife, Emily and they have three children, Elliana (8) Annaleigh (4), and Beckham (2). Beau and his family live in Kennesaw and worship at Four Points Church in Acworth GA. Beau graduated in 2012 from Waldorf University with a B.S. in Fire Science Administration. He is currently an Engineer for Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services and has been with them for almost nine years and he works primarily out of work at station #23 in Powder Springs. In addition to his full time position as a firefighter, Beau earned his Property and Casualty (Life Insurance) license last year and works part-time for Farmers Insurance. He is a producer for the Divine Agency in Woodstock GA. Beau attended MPCS from 4th grade through his graduation in 2006 and has served on the Alumni Association Leadership Council since 2018. He recommends two books to read that he has recently read: The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley, and Seven Men by Eric Metaxas. His life scripture is 1 John 4:19, one that he describes as a simple truth but one easy to overlook: the reminder that God loved us first and life is not all about us! Beau states that he would like to see the MPCS alumni program become one that helps prepare the way for the younger alums who are about to step out into the world. Beau states: “I think we have a huge network of professionals that can help guide and mentor the youth and prepare them for what they may encounter.” Reflecting on his MPCS experience and how that has made him the person that he is today, Beau states: “MPCS made a huge impact on my life. The privilege to worship every day in every moment was amazing. It helped build confidence in my faith to carry on in my life today. I have been able to see the different graduates go out into the world and do some amazing things for this country and the communities that in which they live.”
Welcome Mr. Braswell!
After 22 years of service in the high school, we are excited to announce John Braswell has accepted a new position in the development office as Alumni Relations Manager. Mr. Braswell began with MPCS as a social studies and English teacher. For 18 years he served as high school Dean of Students. He has taught Bible and a journalism class which produced a school newspaper. Throughout his time at MPCS, John has built lasting relationships with students who have passed through his care, and has put a tremendous amount of time and effort into staying connected with our alumni. This mutual deep connection between Mr. Braswell and MPCS alumni make him a perfect fit to serve in this new role.
