The PLC alumni have always been very proud and dedicated to the current PLC program, its history, and its future. Class members from all four decades engage with the program through selection interviews, class lectures, guest seminars, PLC special events, hosting an experiential weekend overnight, giving donations, networking with students, providing internship and job connections, and serving on the Board of Advocates. Now, through the PLC Alumni Club, the alumni are more engaged than ever.
Kyle Hybl is a PLC alumnus from the Class of 1990. You might know him best for his role serving on the Board of Regents for the University of Colorado System, but he is also active in a number of other organizations around Colorado. Kyle currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel for the El Pomar Foundation and General Counsel for The Broadmoor Hotel, Inc., as well as The Garden City Company. He enjoys this experience because it’s allowed him to take part in a mission greater than himself, as well as be surrounded by employees who are striving for excellence. Kyle is also a part of the CU Board of Regents, a position he initially ran for in hopes of serving his community and working alongside other leaders to give back to his akma mater. With a longtime interest in politics and higher education, the Board of Regents felt like the right fit, and Kyle is now serving his second six-year term.
Kyle earned his B.A., as well as his Juris Doctor degree, from CU Boulder. Reflecting on his experience in PLC, Kyle remembers it as the best part of his undergrad experience. He loved being surrounded by such hardworking and high-achieving students. Kyle also appreciates PLC’s element of service, as he feels it taught him the importance of giving back to the community in which you live. Kyle describes how the program still gives him a broader view of the community and offers him opportunities he might not otherwise know about.
Throughout his career, Kyle has served in the US Air Force as a Captain and Judge Advocate. He currently serves on a number of boards ranging from the Police Foundation of Colorado Springs, to the Board of Directors for Junior Achievement USA. Kyle was also recently appointed to the National Cybersecurity Center Board of Directors and as the Chairman of the Cyber Institute Board of Advisors; he is passionate about this cause because he feels that cyber security is going to play a significant economic role in the future. Kyle has always been interested in how individuals come together to move a cause/organization forward, and he loves being able to help develop the best teams possible and empower them to take on new challenges. In his free time, Kyle enjoys spending time with his family and living the Colorado, outdoor lifestyle.
