Student Spotlight – Shaine Mitchell ’17

Loves About Brebeuf

I love how Brebeuf is very inclusive and always finds a way to incorporate everyone in some way, shape, or form. I also enjoy the breaks and all of the free-time given to the students because it allows us to decide what we do with our time at school.  Ultimately giving the students a decision of whether they want to use that time wisely and be successful or not.

Favorite Class

My favorite class would either be AP Calculus AB or Physics I.  Those two classes are arguably two of the most difficult classes at Brebeuf.  However, the teachers are always there if you need any help.  As well as many students that take those two classes usually get together and help each other out while working on problems.

Future Plans

I will be attending Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and majoring in Mechanical Engineering. While there I will also join the National Society for Black Engineers (NSBE) and will play baseball.

Teams & Co-Curriculars

Minority Engineering Program of Indianapolis (MEPI)
Center for Leadership Development (CLD)

Random Facts

I have been playing baseball since I was three and have not gone a summer without playing.  

I can juggle small objects, but only three objects at a time. 

I can do one-handed push ups with both my left and right hand.

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

My favorite experience would either have to be going to state with the football team freshman year, beating Zionsville in baseball junior year, or winning Marion County in baseball senior year. The reasons for those three is because I feel like in each of those instances the team or community came together the most and we played our best.

As a senior, what advice do you have for all the new Braves in the Class of 2021?

Enjoy every moment you have at Brebeuf and take advantage of all the opportunities that are going to be presented to you. Also do not procrastinate — talk to your teachers if you have any questions about any subject material.

Aside from playing baseball, any other plans this summer?

Well, every summer since freshman year, I have worked at Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, where we do landscaping tasks and learn about the different types of trees.  I will be working there again this summer, playing baseball, and my family will probably go on a vacation at some point.  Other than that, I will just be resting and getting ready for college.
