Aviation High School senior Sean Crowley has been appointed to West Point by U.S. Congressman Rick Larsen.
Sean is the second AHS student to win an appointment to West Point this year, joining classmate Drew Hidalgo, who was appointed last month (read our story on Drew here).
Sean has earned a 4.0 GPA in high school, taking a rigorous college-preparatory course of study. He was recognized as a National Merit Commended Scholar and earned an academic letter for every year in high school. Sean serves as secretary the debate team, which competed in national competition last year.
Outside of school, Sean is an enthusiastic and competitive athlete; in addition to playing soccer for 12 years, he runs marathons and consistently places in the top 5 in his division. He works part-time and is actively involved in his church.
Sean commutes to Aviation High School from Sultan, Snohomish County, frequently staying with his grandparents in Tukwila to reduce his weekly travel time.
Last summer, Sean participated in leadership seminars at both West Point and the Naval Academy.
Sean is “one of our most remarkable students,” according to AHS Principal/CEO Reba Gilman. “[He has] an unwavering commitment to excellence. By any standard, Sean is a true scholar who has proven that he can handle a heavy load and persevere through the toughest of situations.”
