High School

Seaton's love of his island home encouraged him to become involved with the St. Simons Land Trust and their mission to protect and preserve the Island's green spaces. Through Seaton's leadership this interest ultimately evolved into a partnership between the Land Trust and Frederica Academy. A participant in the Model United Nations competition throughout High School, while doing research his sophomore year, Seaton came across an organization known as "ONE". Since that time Seaton has been an ardent supporter of the ONE Campaign.


It was on a College Tour with his Frederica classmates that Seaton discovered The College of Charleston. Confident that CofC was the perfect fit for him, he enrolled as a Freshman in the Fall of 2005. Since he arrived on campus, Seaton has been an active member of the Student Body. As a Freshman he was selected to participate in the Leadership Seminar. Sophomore year Seaton was elected as a SGA Senator and created and was named Chairman of the New Facilities Informational Committee.
