I have had the good fortune to work with Brandy for nine years now, and her dedication and enthusiasm for students is seemingly endless. Numerous students and families have been impacted by the work she does and the programs she supports. If there is a more deserving candidate for this award, I would have no idea who it could be.

Thanks for your commitment to the children of this community. You set an example for other educators, administrators, people of the community and most importantly, the children.

Brandy is my cousin! She is beautiful inside and out! She is an amazing person dedicated to helping students succeed in rural America!! It doesn't matter if you live in a rural or urban area, families and kids have needs that are not met. SHE is making a difference in their lives and helping them get the tools they need to be successful! Keep on being amazing!

Brandy is a champion for students. I am new to the community and in my short time here I have experienced Brandy's determination to advocate, support, and help students and families with all she can give. She works diligently to meet student's basic and emotional needs first (food, clothing, housing, counseling services, etc.) and once those are being taken care of, she addresses school attendance to help with getting our kids graduated and ready for life. She focuses on the whole student and their whole situation. She is also always willing to help colleagues when questions come up with support, resources, and information. Brandy is my go to when helping a student who needs community resources. I'm thankful she is here to help!

Our district is simply better because we have Brandy on our side. She’s an adamant supporter of every student and wants each one to have an equal chance at life and the education he/she deserves!

Mrs. Busher has done truely great things for our students. In the 5 years I have known her while, I have served on the Board of Education, she has started and grown a food pantry so that it now includes fresh foods, clothing items and toiletries. She was also instrumental in getting washers and dryers in several of our low income schools. She goes on home visits to asses student needs and is an active voice in our community to ensure the needs of students are heard and being met. She is a true asset and very deserving of this award!

Mrs. Buscher truly is one of the most extraordinary individuals I have had the privlege to work with. She and I have been colleagues for close to 14 years. Brandy has an unwavering passion to do what is right...ALWAYS.... on behalf of our students, families, staff, and community. There are few people who have the level of courage, intelligence, compassion, integrity, and unselfishness as Brandy....every life she touches is changed for the better. She truly is deserving of receiving the Lifechanger of the Year award! Vikki

Brandy is so deserving of this award! Her dedication and hard work are traits of compassion. She does what she does because she wants to help the children have a better chance to grow and contribute. Good on you Brandy, and good on all that her kindness and care touch everyday!

This award nomination represents everything for what Brandy Buscher does for so many! Brandy truly is an advocate for our youth that are unfortunately put in tough situations that we don't want our children in! She works tirelessly to provide our youth opportunities that they deserve! She also works hard to make a difference in the families lives as well. This notoriety is something that is hard for Brandy to accept as she does all of this out of the goodness of her heart! She is definitely the "unsung hero" that offers her heart, leadership, support and much more because that is what she represents! She is amazing at juggling her very busy work life and then coming home to her next job as a wonderful Mother and wife! Her family just adores her as she with them! Brandy Buscher, you are so deserving of everything this award represents! I am so proud to call you my friend!

I have worked with Brandy for nearly fifteen years in a number of capacities. I've watched her grow her position through grants, out-of-the-box thinking, and shear leg work to offer many many services and benefits that would not otherwise be available for our students. She is never afraid to take on a tough situation and work with frustrated patrons to find viable solutions. She is a creative thinker driven to help the kids and families of our District.

She works with a large group of our North Platte Public School Team to help students become successful despite their situation. I am very proud to work with her across the hall and have her friendship. Brandy is the change in the lives of many students and her co-workers. She is very deserving of Life changer of the year award.

Jodi Howard Posted 8 months ago

Brandy works tirelessly to fulfill the needs of our students at North Platte Public Schools. She takes to heart the obstacles that families face and works to break down those barriers to find what works for them. You will not find another person in this district that has the passion for paving the way for every student to learn and be successful despite their deprivations. Not only is she driven, she is the most genuine soul that will get her hands dirty and problem solve until a solution for a difficult situation is found.

Lori Larson Posted 9 months ago

When a student is in need, Brandy Buscher is there, for them and for you too. You absolutely can count on her. A lot of times, people want to help others in need, but then they don't or they can't. Not Brandy Buscher. She makes it happen. every. time. I have worked with Brandy for over a decade, and she has been relentless in her support of students. Brandy has found emergency housing for homeless children, helped feed students living in poverty, assisted with suicidal teens, and made sure the school staff are knowledgable and strong enough to collaborate in helping during those crisises. Our students are managing trauma and hardships, but Brandy doesn't let them fail. If she can't personally solve a problem or give guidance, she will find the resources. I can think of no better person who changes people's lives than Brandy Buscher. Lori Larson, M.Ed. Educator

Bernie Madison Posted 9 months ago

Brandy Buscher, is awesome! We don't see her much down in the Physical Education department, but we feel and see the affects she has on the students fortunate enough to have her. Brandy demonstrates an unmatched desire to enhance growth and development of each student, providing students with an opportunity to succeed. She works with the parents and staff to adhere to the total well-being of the kiddos. Mrs. Buscher epitomizes what a life changer entails.

Connie Thomson Posted 9 months ago

Molly Morales Posted 9 months ago

It is a pleasure to not only work with Brandy on a daily basis, but have her in my life as a very close friend. She is truly one of a kind and the work she does for not only our schools, but also our entire community is amazing. She has sustained a very successful food pantry within our high school, a place where students feel comfortable asking for help and also started a mobile food pantry that serves those in North Platte. She works hard to make sure the students in our schools are safe and well cared for. I would 100% nominate Brandy Buscher for this award, she is very deserving! Keep up the hard work!

I have rarely met a more dedicated person who does her job for all the right reasons. North Platte public school students will all be granted a more equitable chance at life changing education thanks to her efforts. The sheer number of responsibilities that fall to her position would be overwhelming for many, but she takes on the obligations with a studious nature and commitment. The whole district benefits from her presence.
