Early in his career, Brandon McGee was the Youth & College Division NAAACP President for the state of Alabama from 2004-2006. During that time, Rep. McGee became acquainted with many national figures in the civil rights movement.

These experiences and his desire to help people and communities reach their full potential led to his decision to seek public office. His long affiliation and strong ties to his alma mater, Alabama State University, led to the creation of the Brandon McGee Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) scholarship in 2014.
