Senior Feature: Kaylynn Brumett

By: Brynne Cordsen/Senior Writer

Blue Ridge High School senior Kaylynn Brumett is gearing up for a gap year before going to college. During this hiatus, she intends to join the workforce, where she will diligently save up for her future tuition. Brumett plans for a career in either English or Marine Biology.

Having joined Blue Ridge in 2022 as a junior, Brumett has left a notable mark during her time here. One of her most favorite high school memories at Blue Ridge is the moment she achieved a five on her AP U.S. Government and Politics exam, triumphantly declaring, “take that Mr. Orner!”–a tribute to her AP teacher, Ben Orner, who she feels “greatly challenged” her.

In 2023, Kaylynn was elected vice-president of BRPride. Simultaneously, she balances her academic and extracurricular commitments with a part-time job at Chuck-E-Cheese since September 2023, where she dedicates about 15 hours per week.

Now, let’s dive into Brumett’s insights as she shares more about her high school journey in the Q&A below.
