Seamus Fleming, St. Macrina Scholarship
Seamus Fleming, who will be a sophomore Vet Tech student in the 2019/20 school year, is a recipient of the St. Macrina Scholarship.
Seamus is thankful for the help this scholarship provides, and he’s studying hard in order to maintain it. “I really wanted to work hard to maintain my grades,” he explains. “My mom’s a single parent, so it was a really big help to get the scholarship.”
What inspired him to enroll in the Vet Tech program? While taking a gap year, Seamus adopted several reptiles. Noticing his interest, Seamus’s mom suggested taking a look at Manor’s Vet Tech program.
During his freshman year in the Vet Tech program, Seamus discovered how much he truly liked working with animals. From learning on the farm with calves, to becoming captain of the Horse Care Team (a voluntary extracurricular), Seamus has embraced school as fully as he can, and was inducted this year into Phi Theta Kappa, the prestigious international honor society for two-year college students. If that doesn’t sound busy enough, he’s also going to be a student chaplain next year as part of Campus Ministry’s new Student Chaplaincy Program.
Seamus hopes to one day be a vet tech – he’s even considering going to vet school. “I really like working with all types of animals,” he explains.
