Sullivan was named Soccer Coach of the Year in Ohio and is a teacher at Noble Elementary School.
Each year Sean Sullivan gathers as many teddy bears and stuffed animals as he can and donates them to the kids at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. Last year he donated around 2,000 to children. "He's always there to support the kids, whatever age they are," Mayor Ed Kelley said of Sullivan.

Tigers will face Mayfield in district final
Cleveland Heights soccer coach Sean Sullivan is positively gushing these days. And why shouldn’t he? The Tigers went on the road and knocked off top seed and perennial powerhouse Mentor, 1-0, Wednesday evening and reached a Division I district final.

In all his years at Cleveland Heights, Sullivan hadn’t defeated Mentor before Wednesday night. “I have been with the program for 19 years, eight as an assistant …

New artificial turf field and picnic area to open by summer
Denison Park is getting a makeover. The City of Cleveland Heights will start building a new artificial turf field in Denison Park once the weather improves, and it will open by the end of July. Council approved the new field in the Spring of 2010, said Susanna Niermann O’Neil, director of the community services department at Cleveland Heights, at a meeting on Jan. 11. The city hired Behnke Associates, a landscape and architecture consulting firm based in Cleveland, and after reviewing bids, chose Marous Brothers Construction to build the field.
