Shawn Butler (2nd from right) pictured with members of the Division at graduation.
The first recipient of the James P. Brennan Academic Scholarship, Shawn Butler, graduated from the University of Delaware this past Saturday!
Shawn demonstrated one of the reasons he was chosen by the fact that he graduated in only three years. That shows tremendous dedication and work ethic.
Shawn plans to continue his studies at Graduate school at Binghamton University in Binghamton, NY.
Both his parents, Sharon and Mike are very proud of his accomplishments. Sharon stated, "We owe the Hibernians many thanks for helping to fund his education." After seeing the works and purpose of the Division, Mike Butler became a member of the division following the awarding of the scholarship.
Division members have volunteered at UofD graduation for a number of years and Shawn was gracious enough to stop by our booth to share his good news.
