One of my favorite students at Dartmouth's engineering school is Sean Furey. He is a great student and athlete and is the only person so far to be able to pull back my new 120 pound long bow.
Below is the citation for a recent reward he received as the Scholar Athelete of the year. Send him a note of congratulations.
