I have come to learn that I feel the most fulfilled when others around me are thriving.”

Shawn’s dedication to his school community and the community in which he lives is demonstrated every day through his selfless giving of his time and leadership skills. As president of the Gardiner Area High School Interact Club, involved in the Maine Junior Classical League, and providing resources to children in foster care with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid-Maine, Shawn understands the importance of well-being for all.  Shawn’s statement above gives insight into his character and his understanding of responsibility for others.

Where Shawn sees problems, he works on solutions. His education is very important to him, and it has played an important role in helping him to balance his school and community activities. Through his high school years, Shawn has expanded his leadership skills as he works with Maine legislators to procure grants to expand climate education in Maine while continuing to be involved in school activities.

Shawn will attend Columbia University in the fall.
