Brooker Elementary — named after pioneering Brandon resident Joseph Richard Brooker — opened in 1961 as a 13-classroom school, but it wasn’t dedicated until October 1963. Fifty years later, the students inside Brooker’s classrooms have made the green and gold proud. The school has earned an ‘A’ grade in nine out of the past 10 years.
