MEN WITH DREAMS TEAM

Meet the people behind the dream.


BRANDON McWILLIAMS

Executive Director

Brandon was raised in Lincoln, NE graduating from Lincoln High School in 2006. His opportunity to go to college came from a football scholarship allowing him to attend Peru State. Brandon struggled to identify a dream he wanted to accomplish, leading him on a journey to multiple universities in an attempt to stay on the football field. He eventually landed at Concordia University. With injuries keeping him off the field, different professors challenged him to focus on life goals leading to Brandon graduating with a degree in psychology. These experiences helped Brandon shape his passion behind MwD, creating an environment where students can explore options at an early age while being encouraged to believe they can achieve their goals. "Providing opportunities for students to experience their dreams, will keep them motivated to complete the hard work step by step to get there". 


CHRISTOPHER PHIPPS

Assistant Director

Christopher Phipps is from Harlem, New York. He graduated high school in New Jersey in 2008 and went on to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on a track and field scholarship. Graduating in 2013 with a degree in psychology and then receiving a master’s in higher education administration in 2015, he decided that his target for influence would be the youth of the Lincoln, Nebraska community. Chris’s passion for youth is strong. He expresses this passion through his actions and his music, as he seeks to inspire youth to be the best they can be. Chris is also an artist and DJ, and he teaches dance. With Chris's energy, he adds a unique spark to the MWD team that adds a necessary edge when connecting with today’s youth.
