Kylie Kapraun

Flushing High School senior Kylie Kapraun has been selected as the Flushing Rotary Club Student of the Month for November 2021.

Kapraun, a member of the FHS Rotary Interact Club, is carrying a 3.9 GPA and ranks in the top 20 in the Class of 2022. She will graduate this spring with high honors.

In addition to belonging to the Rotary Interact Club, Kapraun is also a member of the National Honors Society, Mu Alpha Theta, Blueberry Ambassadors and Varsity Club. Her volunteer work includes helping with food distribution at New Life Church through the National Honors Society, volunteering at the soup kitchen through the Blueberries, reading to kids at Elms Elementary School through Varsity Club and making Candlewalk s’mores and blankets with the Rotary Interact Club.

Kapraun has participated in cross country at FHS for three years (all varsity) and track for four years (all varsity). Her favorite FHS memory, in fact, was running the football from Fenton to FHS for Homecoming pep rally festivities.

Currently, Kapraun is undecided on which college she will attend, but she is planning to study business administration and attend law school afterwards.

Kapraun said that her favorite FHS teacher was Amy McInerney, whom she had for advanced biology and MI Outdoors classes. McInerney helped Kapraun to realize she could handle advanced classes and was always positive, uplifting and encouraging.

Outside of school, Kapraun has an Etsy business and makes products at home to sell—such as YETI cups. Additionally, she enjoys running, biking and reading realistic fiction.

Kapraun also participates in a lot of German folk dancing— mostly at the Carpathia Club in Sterling Heights. She plans to visit Germany next summer.

Kapraun’s Rotary donation will go to Special Olympics/ Project Unify through Elementary, Middle School, and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) at FHS.
