We had the good fortune of connecting with Sean Webb and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sean, can you tell us more about your background and the role it’s played in shaping who you are today?
I was born in the small town of Newark, New York. I lived there till I moved to Buffalo, New York for college in fall 1996. Throughout my childhood, I was fortunate to watch my father serve the community. For the most part he chaired/participated in various fundraisers to pay for needs in the community.
His givingness ranged from chairing golf tournaments for the local community center to serving as the chairman of the Newark Community Hospital as well as the local Country Club for a couple of years.
My dad taught me a bunch of things, more than I can list, but a couple that stand out to me, relationships, relationships, relationships, and to never burn any bridge.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
One part of my professional career is being part of the students success at La Quinta High School. Many times they were featured in local press and being offered jobs on site after volunteering at events in the community.
I still need to add more to this section
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Favorite spots outside of LA as I do not frequent much
Hiking in the La Quinta cove and exploring restaurants and shops in Old Town

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I recently finished my term as the longest serving chairman of the board for Leadership Coachella Valley. I first was introduced to this program in 2014 by Bianca Rae. She introduced me to the program that shaped and changed my career path. It was through this program where my school district saw the need for someone on their team to seek for opportunities within the community for students to volunteer at, shadow, be mentored by. Thank you Desert Sands Unified School District in creating the Director of Community Engagement and Education Foundation position. I love holding this job for the district.
