Sean Gilston is an ALB undergraduate degree candidate studying Government. Prior to attending the Extension School, Sean spent his time working with Americorps, and travelling the country. He has been attending the Extension School as a full-time student for two years, and he is excited to step into the role of Director of Events. Working with HESA is an opportunity to become connected with the greater HES community. One of the primary objectives of this HESA board is to build on the image of the Extension School by utilizing community storytelling. As the Director of Events, Sean will work towards accomplishing that same objective. He believes that he can fulfill his role by working on events that serve as platforms for the community storytelling to take place. If Sean’s work with HESA leads to a stronger HES community, then he will feel that he has accomplished what he set out to do as Director of Events.
