Her responsibilities include teaching health and physical education to students in grades 7 through 10, coaching basketball, field hockey and softball.

She holds certifications as a registered athletic administrator and a registered middle school athletic administrator and is a member of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association. "I have met so many intelligent, talented and caring people as a member of the Sacred Heart family," said Bruninghaus. "I am grateful and thankful to have known everyone who has walked the halls, taught, and played on the fields and courts. While it's an honor to receive this award, it's been an even greater honor to participate in this outstanding community." "What a pleasure to announce Marie as recipient of the 2019 Caritas Award," said Sister Myra Rodgers, president of Sacred Heart School.
