Sean Kellerman was named the Area Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence Sunflower and Langston Hughes sites in 2016. He began his career in the Movement in 2014 as the Program Manager of the Sunflower Elementary site as well as working the Summer BGC programs at Langston Hughes. Sean received his Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism (2013) from the University of Kansas – and has put it to good use ever since. Along with his unyielding commitment to the Boys & Girls Club, Sean is also dedicated to his work on radio, TV and public address announcing at KU. Sean is the play-by-play ESPN3 broadcaster for select Kansas baseball games. He hosts the Kansas football pregame and postgame shows on the Jayhawk IMG Sports Network (610 Sports Radio) and provides the arena voice for all of the nationally-ranked Kansas volleyball home matches.
His favorite thing to do in Lawrence is attend Kansas basketball games at Allen Fieldhouse (duh), but his heart belongs to his two nieces (Camryn and Madilynn) and three nephews (Padraig, Jeremy and Grayson).
