Mohawk Trail Regional School is proud to announce senior Sean O’Dea as the recipient of the 2021–22 Superintendent’s Award. O’Dea is currently ranked second in his class and is a valued member of the MTRS school community both in and outside of the classroom.

O’Dea excels in the classroom and consistently takes a full course load of honors and advanced placement courses; having earned straight As throughout his high school career. His current GPA is 4.53. O’Dea has taken a variety of MTRS’ most challenging courses offered, including AP U.S. and World History, and has participated in classes at Greenfield Community College (where he once again earned an A for his work).

In addition to being an exceptional student in the classroom, O’Dea is also an incredible peer leader at school. He is an active member of Key Club, and has served as secretary for the past two years; is the treasurer for National Honors Society; has served as class president (ninth and tenth) and now as secretary; has served on student council throughout his high school career and now holds the position of vice president; and also serves as the student representative on the school committee. He uses his voice and energy to enact positive change and provide a variety of fun, engaging opportunities for his school.

O’Dea is also an active member of MTRS athletics. He has served as a captain of the junior varsity basketball team and is captain of the cross country and track teams. O’Dea is quick on his feet and placed in the top 50 runners in the Western Mass championships and received an All-League Award in 2019 and 2020. He is also a committed, dedicated member of his wider community, and has involvement with numerous community service projects throughout high school including serving as a Project 351 representative; volunteering as a server at the athletic association Bridge Dinner; hosting a youth track program for elementary students, and was an integral member of the MassIDEAS MTRS Weekend Design Institute where he provided important student feedback and helped lay the foundation for the school's redesign work.

An accomplished student, athlete, and dedicated member of his community, O’Dea is a shining example of all the qualities an MTRS student embodies. We are incredibly proud of his work in the classroom, community service, and leadership at MTRS and it brings us great honor to recognize him as a recipient of the Superintendent’s Award this year.
