Sean Dunkelman Wins Scholarship

We are proud to have awarded a $1,500 scholarship to Sean Dunkelman, a local high school student who is attending the University of Colorado, Boulder. He is interested in pursuing a career in mechanical engineering, with plans to use his technical and entrepreneurial skills to help solve some of the complex problems facing our planet today.

His cross country coach, Jay Frey, had this to say about Sean: “The balance Sean Dunkelman is able to maintain with everything in his life is beyond my understanding. He is virtually unmatched academically with a very challenging case load, he’s been a three-sport athlete all the while maintaining a great personality and being loved by everyone I can think of.”

Sean graduated from Douglas High School in 2018, number two in his class, with a 4.88 weighted GPA. He has served in many leadership roles in school, including Associated Student Body President and Junior Class President. Sean is also a three-sport varsity athlete who has earned six trips to the state championships for ski racing and has been awarded 10 varsity letters. He gives back to the community through the Block D Letterman’s Club, the National Honor Society and the Douglas High School Leadership Program.

Dr. Paul Manoukian and Dr. Brian Romaneschi have awarded more than $39,000 in scholarships over the past 11 years to local high school seniors pursuing advanced education in healthcare.
