About Sean Dolan

My name is Sean Dolan. I am a parent of 3 children, a 2nd grader, 9th grader, and a Senior in high school. Our niece also lives with us and is a Sophomore in high school. I myself attended Katy ISD from 4th grade at Golbow Elementary, to McDonald Junior High, and graduated from Mayde Creek High School. I am a product of Katy ISD.

Locally, I'm better known for creating A Better Legacy which has been causing a bit of a stir in the Katy community for holding our leaders accountable. Here are some facts and accomplishments. Anything else you'd like to know, you are welcome to ask me
