Sean Riedl


Mechanical Engineer


By the age of 11, Sean Riedl had managed to go through five years of school without knowing how to read. He excelled in mathematics and science but struggled severely with reading. Immediately after enrolling at Marburn, he was amazed at how invested his teachers were in his education and how much they cared about him as an individual.


After spending five years at Marburn, his reading deficit had been remediated and he transitioned to St. Charles Preparatory School, where he later graduated. He graduated from the University of Miami, majoring in Mechanical Engineering, and later received his master’s in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He now helps to maintain the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered submarines in between their deployments.

Sean says, “I am so thankful for my Marburn education. My hard work today, combined with the skill of my Marburn teachers, helped prepare me for life and my career.”
