As the Development Director for the Washburn University Alumni Association and Foundation, Sean raises money to enhance the educational opportunities for students at Washburn. He connects people, resources, and ideas by building relationships to create a bright future for not only Washburn University but for the Topeka community as a whole.
As the chairman, Sean has overseen the rebranding of Forge Young Professionals and currently serves on the Momentum 2022 Committee.
In addition to serving on several other local boards, Sean co-founded NOTO Anonymous and managed the Young Leaders Society that distributed more than 10,000 books to local kindergarten students and developed the Born Learning Trail Park at Pine Ridge Prep.
Where do you see Topeka in 10 years? I see the work of Momentum 2022 allowing our community to be a great place to live, work, and play. In 10 years I hope that our residents brag about how they lived here before all these new people started coming to our community.
Why did you choose Topeka as the place to build your career? I chose Topeka because you can really make an impact on the things you care about in our community.
