Recent graduate Sean La Marr (’18) will serve as the 2018-2019 WA Department of Veterans Affairs/AmeriCorps Vet Corps Navigator to UW Bothell.  The Vet Corps helps veterans and their families navigate Washington’s higher education and training programs as veterans adjust from military to college life.

In 2010, La Marr enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and in 2011, reported to the Navy’s only forward-deployed aircraft carrier, USS George Washington in Yokosuka, Japan as a Mass Communications Specialist. In 2014, he transferred to the Navy Public Affairs Support Element unit in Mayport, Florida and served as the Leading Petty Officer until the conclusion of his active duty enlistment, transferring into the Navy Reserves.

Transitioning from active-duty, La Marr began school at UW Bothell, graduating in June 2018 with a B.A. in Law, Economics & Public Policy and Media & Communication Studies. He also minored in human rights and was a member of the University Disciplinary Committee (2016-2017), a Student Conduct Officer (2017-2018), Diversity Council Member (2017-2018), and Vice President of the Student Veteran Association (2017-2018).
