Westmont’s award-winner this year is distance-runner Sean Adams. Adams, who was captain of this year’s cross-country team, is a Colorado native who carries a 3.8 GPA and plans to pursue a career in the capital equity investment sector. He also competes on the track team in the spring.
He has a particular interest in economic development in Latin America, and is a member of the Dean’s List at Westmont.
“I began racing in seventh grade and haven’t stopped since,” he said.
He said that it’s been a blessing to work with coaches like Russell Smelley, who put more emphasis on character and personal achievement than winning.
