We are excited to shine the spotlight on this week’s alumnus, Kevin Seery, who is a captain of the United States Army. His educational journey began at Maria Regina School in Seaford for elementary school, followed by St. John the Baptist DHS in West Islip for high school, and then Military College of Vermont in Northfield, VT for college.
Kevin obtained his BA in History and is currently in the process of receiving his MS in Aeronautical Science and Space Technology. During his school years, Kevin participated in a range of clubs, sports, and activities. In elementary and high school, he was involved in the Civil Air Patrol, sailing, track, St. Andrews Association, and the Ancient Order of Hibernians. In college, Kevin joined the Norwich Corps of Cadets, Army ROTC, the Mountain/Cold Weather Rescue Team, Ranger Company, and took part in the Ranger Challenge.
My education from Maria Regina and St. John the Baptist provided an exceptional foundation for becoming a useful citizen and man of faith, which both go hand in hand. This foundation, in not the least bit of ways, inculcated the idea of lifelong learning, as well as ethical and moral decision making early on in my life. The high expectation of academic performance, inter-personal relationship building, and faith-based living has proven to be the pillars for success in my life. The unique learning environment the Catholic Church and the Diocese of Rockville Centre provides through our Catholic school system is imperative to the maintenance of intelligent, moral decision makers who will lead our communities and parishes.– Kevin Seery
Outside of Kevin’s career, he finds fulfillment in a diverse array of activities. He generously volunteers with the Civil Air Patrol, nurturing his passion for service and aviation. Beyond that, he delves into the worlds of general aviation, mountaineering, ice climbing, skiing, sailing, surfing, and exploring new instruments. Kevin’s passion for these activities showcases his love for life and his eagerness to embrace new experiences.
We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to count Kevin as an alumnus of Long Island Catholic schools. His unwavering commitment to serving our country fills us with immense pride. As he continues to make a difference through his dedicated service, we wish him nothing but the very best.
