Student Spotlight – Kyle Brun ’18

Loves About Brebeuf 

I love the opportunities to be involved and active around campus. From intramural basketball to film club to the Gender Sexuality Alliance, it is remarkably easy to find whatever you are passionate about and become a leader around the community. The robust community service program is also an awesome aspect of our school, that further gives students opportunities to grow and serve with others.

Favorite Class

Currently, I have been enjoying AP Government and AP Comparative Government with Mr. Kantz. My favorite class of all time has to be Honors English sophomore year with Ms. Parson.

Future Plans 

I am still in the process of figuring out whether I will be at Ball State, Xavier, or the University of Dayton. I plan to study public relations, likely with a minor in political science.

Random Facts 

I once started a fire by rubbing two sticks together.

I enjoy puns more than i’m willing to admit.

My favorite holiday is the Fourth of July.

I hate math with the burning passion of a thousand suns (Brebeuf teachers make it doable, however).

Any big Spring Break plans?

I have the awesome opportunity to travel down to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic with a couple of my friends and our families. I’m very excited!

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

I am definitely a West Wing buff. I really like the Big Bang Theory and Burn Notice too.

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

Gold Coast, Australia. Australia as a whole seems like an amazing place to go, and while talking to one of my brother’s friends who grew up there, he told me that it was the hidden gem within the country. Secretly, though, my goal is to ride a kangaroo through the outback as calming didgeridoo plays in the background.

Congratulations on earning your Eagle!  What was the process of becoming an eagle scout like and what project did you complete?

Thank you! It was a long journey filled with undercooked pancakes made by scouts who can’t cook, and fun times around campfires. The journey culminated in my eagle scout project, where I had the opportunity to construct three portable bookshelves that helped to organize and expand the program night library for Brooke’s Place for Grieving Young People.

You are now in your final semester at Brebeuf Jesuit.  Has it sunk in yet?

Well, considering I still mess up the schedule all the time and have a lot going on, I would say it definitely hasn’t. I’m sure as senior week activities begin and I decide on a college, it will really begin to sink in. 

In what way have you changed the most since your freshman year?

I’ve scored a lot more points in intramural basketball. A lot more turnovers, too. On a serious note, however, I think I have grown in my ability to view life through other perspectives, which has helped me to reach out to others in a more sincere and deep-rooted way.
