Hunt for Success
The Hunt for Success program of the Berean Community Center, Inc.(BCC) was established in 2015 to honor the life of Charles B. Hunt, Esq. After a life-long battle with type 1 diabetes (T1D), he passed away at only 30 years of age. Charles, affectionately know as Brandon by his friends and loved ones, became a well-respected, well-liked, and nationally known lawyer. While he achieved much success in his career, his passion was mentoring young people who did not have the opportunities he was fortunate to have. Brandon also had a passion for athletics and played for the Wake County Bar Association’s Lawyers’ Basketball League, which was renamed after him in 2014. The Hunt for Success program honors Brandon by investing in his passions emphasizing achievement in academics and athletics for young people.
