Student Spotlight – Ellie Detherage ’18

Loves About Brebeuf

I hate to repeat what most people say, but I really love the community and family aspect of Brebeuf. I came from a public middle school so being given such a warm welcome at Brebeuf was really refreshing my freshman year. I know that if I ever needed anything I could go to faculty or students at Brebeuf, I could truly go to anyone and they would support me. You can’t walk down the halls during a passing period without at least 2 people saying hi or smiling at you. 

Favorite Class

I’ve enjoyed a lot of my classes during my time at Brebeuf, but AP Psychology with Mr. Petty last year was great. I really enjoyed the people in my class and also the interactive activities that we did. I am also really looking forward to Life Skills with Ms. Watko second semester this year!

Future Plans

Right now I am not sure where I want to go for college. I am hoping to go somewhere out of Indiana, maybe on the west coast. Wherever I choose, I plan to study psychology and potentially become a social worker. 

Teams & Co-Curriculars

Dance Team
Tennis Team
Guatemalan Club

Random Facts

I have two older sisters, and Izzy, who is two years older than me, hit me in the head with a golf club when I was 11. I surprisingly did not have a concussion and did not need any stitches.

I’m taller than both of my sisters.

I’ve taken a tour of the White House. 

I’m obsessed with Christmas.

What is your current favorite show or series on tv, Netflix, etc?

Ah that’s a tough choice. I think my favorite would have to be How I Met Your Mother or Hart of Dixie.

If you could travel to any place in the world, where would you go and why?

Probably Fiji or Australia. Both places are beautiful and I really like the beach. They also look incredibly relaxing. 

What advice would you offer our Braves in the Class of 2021?

Take everything in as you go. High school moves incredibly fast and although it can be really stressful, it’s really fun. And take advantage of everything Brebeuf has to offer right now. Go in and see your teachers, go on the trips during spring break and the summer, and appreciate Brebeuf while you’re there!
