  8. I want to express my deepest condolences to the entire Seda family. Mike and I graduated Animal Science 1&2 together, and during the times we we’re in class he was always such a positive presence in the room. He has always had my deepest respect. Mike will truly be missed.

  13. candleI have had the pleasure of knowing Mike and working with him for the last 2 years in the Animal Science program. The 2019-2020 school year was one like no other, and that was the time that I had him
    in my class. We had a blast when class was in session, taking full advantage of not only the learning in our program, but Skills USA, Advocacy Day, the Longwood Legislative Breakfast, and much more. The last weekend before the pandemic shut down schools and we went virtual, my son and I went to see me in him in his role in Grease at his high school. We navigated online learning together and Mike took advantage of his time in the veterinary field where we really needed help. I have watched him grow as a senior in high school, preparing to pursue his career in veterinary medicine. He led our building as Skills USA President and completed his year leading his peers at BTC’s recognition ceremony. He was a “go to” person, always willing to step up and take care of anything that needed to be done. We spent lots of time talking about experiences in the field, cases we’ve seen, and future opportunities to work together. He was not just a dreamer, but he was working towards his goals in a big way. To say he has made a mark on me, or the other students in our building would be an understatement. As we left after graduation and took out final walk of the year to the buses, I distinctly remember telling him we weren’t going to cry and be sad, but that I’ll just see you later. I feel so lucky to be a part of his journey. He was truly one of a kind and I will really miss our heart to hearts, comparing cases, and most of all continuing our work together in the field. He was an outstanding young man, role model, leader, animal advocate, and friend. My heart and prayers are with his family, loved ones, friends, and colleagues. He was truly one of a kind. I know I had the opportunity to teach him and that now he’s teaching us all how to appreciate the moments we have together. “That’s it for now continue with your regularly scheduled programs.” ♥️

  14. Miss you so much can’t believe you are gone. Always remember you are someone people cair about. P.S Love you More!! ❤️
