Brandman University honors the winners of their Most Valuable Person, or “MVP,” contest at Angels® Stadium on July 20th. To recognize that real heroes are often disguised as common people full of dedication and perseverance, improving the lives of others, the university held a competition on Facebook asking people to nominate their “most valuable person.” Hundreds of nominations were received and five winners were selected by popular vote. The group includes two special education teachers, an emergency room doctor, a father of five and a US Navy Seal Cadet, all of whom were awarded MVP for making a positive impact on their friends, family and community.
