Sean “Flynny” Flynn was known by his loved ones for his sense of humor and his knowledge of sports.
Unfortunately, Sean suffered from multiple traumatic brain injuries from sports-related concussions and passed away too soon due to suicide at the age of eighteen. Even though Sean lost his own battle with mental health, he brought light and laughter into the lives of those who knew him.
This scholarship aims to continue Sean Flynn’s legacy of love and laughter by supporting high school students who are preparing for higher education.
Any high school junior or senior from Pennsylvania who will be going on to pursue higher education may apply for this scholarship.
