Quote from teacher: “As a student, Sean is one of the most intellectually gifted young men I have ever had the pleasure of teaching,” said Adam Dane, AP English composition/AP Latin teacher. “His innate brilliance is only enhanced by his steadfast diligence and effort, and he always exceeds expectations both in and out of the classroom. Further, Sean possesses a truly genuine character and cares deeply about the people with whom he interacts; he repeatedly proves his commitment to justice and service to others and his unreserved willingness to sacrifice himself to enhance the lives of others is truly admirable.”
