Mr. Brandon Murphy

I am a life long resident of Johnston County. I reside in the Benson area with my lovely wife Christy our two precious girls and our labrador Sir Dublin. I attended South Johnston High School and then continued my education at the collegiate level. I graduated from UNCW and worked in the Law enforcement field for over ten years. During my time in the law enforcement field, I discovered my love for education and working with young adults.  My career path brought me back to my home here at Benson Middle School. Using my knowledge of government and Law, I am fortunate to teach 8th Grade Social Studies and English Language Arts. I also serve as the Benson Middle School Athletic Director.  I looked forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with my students daily.
