Student Spotlight – Elizabeth Grout ’19
Loves About Brebeuf
I love all of the opportunities Brebeuf has to offer. My freshman year, I participated in three different sports and joined a variety of clubs in an attempt to experience every aspect of Brebeuf. Even as a senior, I am discovering different niches of Brebeuf every day. And if you think you can add to the experience of Brebeuf, you can start your own club or create your own intramural team. My friend and I even started Knitting Club to make hats and scarves for the homeless population of Indianapolis, and the turnout has been great.
Class You Are Most Looking Forward to This Year
All of them! Namely, AP Macro with Mr. Tague and French 4 with Mme. Martin. Mr. Tague and Mme. Martin are two of my favorite teachers ever, so I am happy to spend my last year at Brebeuf with them. Also, Mme. Martin regularly makes brownies for the class, so that’s a plus.
As of now, I hope to attend Marquette University and major in either marketing or international business and minor in political science. I also plan on having two kids, rescuing two dogs, and retiring to Hawaii by age 40.

Where would you travel if time and money weren’t an issue?
I would travel to New Zealand. I love being in the mountains, and I also love going to the beach, so New Zealand seems like the best of both worlds in that aspect. Also, I have never been out of the country, so I would hope to travel as far away as possible.
What are some small things that make your day better?
I am a morning person, so my favorite thing to do is wake up, make a cup of coffee (Fresh Thyme’s Kona coffee), and make myself some pancakes. I also love high-fives. The world would be a happier place if more people gave high-fives.
How did you spend your summer?
I spent my summer working. I love being busy, and this summer I had four jobs. I was a swim coach for my neighborhood swim team, taught private swim lessons, was the manager/head lifeguard of my neighborhood pool, and worked at Pottery By You. I love working and I am already saving for my first apartment, so this summer was very productive.
What are you most looking forward to during this school year?
I am most looking forward to swim season. I have gotten very close with my teammates these past three years, and they feel like family now. I always feel the most at home during swim season, so I am eager to get back in the pool. It is also tradition that we wear Crocs to school every meet day, so I can’t wait to break out my Crocs again.
