Student Spotlight – Jack Guyer ’17

Loves About Brebeuf

My favorite thing about Brebeuf is the feeling of community all throughout the school.  Coming from a large, public middle school, I did not know the feeling of learning in a strong and close-knit community.  Brebeuf has taught me much more about what it means to be a member of a community.

Favorite Class

My all-time favorite class was AP Physics with Mr. Rott. Though very challenging, physics taught me all sorts of things about how the world around me works.  Mr. Rott made the class fun and entertaining.  This class helped me to decide that I want to study engineering in college.

Future Plans

I plan to attend Clemson, Georgia Tech, Alabama, or Auburn and study engineering.  I may double major in economics as well.  

Teams & Co-Curriculars

Golf Team
Entrepreneurship Club
National Honor Society
Ignatian Scholars
Work at Maggiano’s Little Italy
Church at the Crossing Youth Group

Random Facts

I love being outside doing anything at all from hiking to paddleboarding.

There was a time at which I could both solve a Rubik’s cube and make balloon animals.  I have since forgotten both.

I love doing magic tricks and card tricks even though I am not very good at them.

What has been your favorite Brebeuf experience or most memorable moment so far?

My favorite Brebeuf experience has definitely been this year when we beat Cathedral in football.  I always love watching Brebeuf win, and when we are an underdog, I love it even more.  The best part about the win for me is that I nearly decided to go to Cathedral.  That game, once again, confirmed something I already knew; I made the right decision in choosing Brebeuf.

If you could go hiking and/or paddleboarding anywhere you haven’t been, where would you want to go?

Once it is complete, I dream of hiking the entire California Coastal Trail.  It is currently over halfway done, but it will eventually span the entire 1,200-mile-long California coast.  That would be a great accomplishment for me.
