Class of 2019 Profile: Siann O.

Congratulations to Siann O. ‘19, Upper Marlboro resident, who is the recipient of the Prince George’s County Kiwanis Club Scholarship, awarded to an outstanding student whose enthusiasm, dedication, and service to School and community makes them the highest example of the ideals the Kiwanis Club refers to as “Good Citizenship.”

Siann is a model citizen at Seton; she is passionate, innovative and benevolent. Secretary of the National Honor Society, Admissions Ambassador and Peer Mediator leader, she has also been a member of the Volleyball team and has participated whole-heartedly in service opportunities with the Special Olympics. She is also a member of Operation Understanding DC, an organization promoting respect, understanding and cooperation while working to eradicate racism, anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination.

Siann will graduate with a distinction for completing Seton’s Pharmacy Technician Program, with the goal of becoming a Pharmacist. As part of the program, she volunteered at the Washington Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Of the experience, Siann declares it life-changing, “I was fortunate to be placed in a position in a hospital that I am interested in pursuing as an adult. Working alongside pharmacists who were so dedicated to their careers and to the Veterans they served motivated me to work harder. I was grateful to be able to give back to the Veterans who risked their lives to protect our country and also did not take for granted the fragility of the Veteran population. It helped me further appreciate the critical importance of treating every patient with the grace and dignity they deserve.”

Attending the University of Maryland College Park this fall, Siann will live in the Carillon Communities, a living-learning program composed of ten communities broadly grouped into three themes; Social Justice, Science, and Entrepreneurship. Thank you for being such a great model of the light to know and grace to do. We wish you the best of luck at Maryland next year, Siann!
