In 2006, TFAS alumnus and co-chairman of The Fund for American Studies’ Board of Regents Kyle Hybl (ICPES 91, AIPES 93) was elected by voters of Colorado’s 5th congressional district to serve a six-year term on the Board of Regents for the University of Colorado. Kyle is two-time TFAS alumnus, having studied in the Engalitcheff Institute on Comparative Political and Economic Systems in 1991 and the American Institute on Political and Economic Systems in Prague in 1993.
Hybl says his involvement in the public sector began as a result of his time with TFAS.
“The opportunity to interact with leaders of the country during my time at ICPES in 1991 really fostered my interest in the political process and pushed me to become involved,” Hybl said.
There is no doubt that he has made an effort to be involved in his community. He serves as general counsel to The Garden City Company in Garden City, Kansas, and legal advisor to National Homeland Defense Foundation in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He is on the Board of Directors for the Fitzsimons Redevelopment Authority, the University of Colorado Real Estate Foundation, the Air Force Academy Foundation, and the Colorado Springs World Arena. He serves on the panel of the nonprofit sector’s Small Organizations Work Group and the Alliance for Charitable Reform steering group. He is also a member of the Academy of Hospitality Industry Attorneys.
Professionally, Kyle serves as Vice President and General Counsel for the El Pomar Foundation and General Counsel for The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Kyle gives back to TFAS through his service on the Board of Regents and as a supporter of scholarships for students from Colorado.
Kyle is a former Air Force Captain and served in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He received both his B.A. and J.D. from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He and his wife, Sally, have four children.
