Meredith McBrayer became a SOTX athlete in 1998 and is a member of the Boerne Special Olympics delegation. The aquatics, bowling and cycling competitor is a confident and well-rounded 24-year-old who gives back to her community every chance she gets. She participates in city (cycling) rides just for fun, and is a member of the Praise Handbells Ringers - a group of special needs children and adults who ring handbells at local churches.

A graduate of Champion High School, McBrayer is employed at Morningside Ministries Assisted Living and volunteers at church weekly cleaning the sanctuary and refilling pew cards.

Giving back and joining the movement runs in the family: McBrayer's mom is a bowling coach, delegation treasurer and member of the Boerne Special Olympics Board. Her father is also a bowling coach.
