Eastern Connecticut State University junior Sean Chmielewski and his younger brother Mark, a freshman, received scholarships on Nov. 20 at the Connecticut Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (CTAHPERD) Banquet at the Crowne Plaza in Cromwell, CT.
Sean received the Gibson-Laemel scholarship, which is awarded to a junior or senior health, physical education, recreation, or dance major who maintains a 2.7 GPA and is a member of CTAHPERD. Mark was awarded the Mary Benevento/CTAHPERD scholarship, given to a student in the graduating class of a high school or preparatory school who is a U.S. citizen and a resident of Connecticut. This student must plan to engage in the studies of health education, physical education, recreation or dance and plan to pursue a certified program of study in a collegiate institution within Connecticut that offers a bachelor’s degree in that field.
Sean, along with Erin Leduc, was also nominated by the HPE Department as Outstanding Future Professionals.
