Zabric Kline - Class of 2017
May 27, 2021
This month’s alumni spotlight features Zabric Kline from the Class of 2017.
Zabric began his Catholic education at Ss. Simon and Jude just a few miles away from Bourgade. On his journey to becoming a Golden Eagle, Zabric found Bourgade’s value for developing the whole person to be captivating. During his high school years, he took full advantage of all the opportunities Bourgade had to offer and quickly jumped into athletics, student council, campus ministry and honor societies.
Excelling at every turn, Zabric found great success during his swimming career winning individual state championships his sophomore and senior years. Zabric also competed for a golf state championship his freshman and senior years. Following high school, Zabric attended Barrett the Honors College at Arizona State University where he recently graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Accountancy. His extensive involvement continued through college as Zabric joined Phi Kappa Theta social fraternity where he held several leadership roles. Zabric also was an active member of the Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity and participated in a research study that explored interpretations and issues surrounding the constitution.
During his college freshman year, Zabric also became involved with the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) advocacy group through their Areté Academy. Alliance Defending Freedom is identified as “the worlds’ largest legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, marriage and family, parental rights and the sanctity of life” (adflegal.org/about-us). His experience with the organization opened his eyes to the need for Christian servitude and ultimately sparked his interest in law school. In April, Zabric was accepted into the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law as an O’Connnor Honors Fellow for the 2021 fall semester.
As his academic and professional journey are set for the next chapter, Zabric is thankful for Bourgade’s ability to prepare him for his college experience. Beyond the basic elements of college prep, Zabric says that Bourgade equipped him with the tools to discern what is worth pursuing. Though he is extremely proud of his academic and professional accomplishments, Zabric is most proud of the relationships that he was able to cultivate at Bourgade and beyond.
Congratulations to Zabric on all his success. Join our community in praying for Zabric as he embarks on the next steps of his young journey!
