Bickleton grad headed to Harvard

BOSTON - Reagan J. Grabner, son of Doug and Helen Grabner of Bickleton, has been accepted at Harvard Business School to pursue a Master’s in business administration.

A 1999 graduate of Bickleton High School, the 24-year-old Grabner will begin attending classes at Harvard in August of this year. After high school, he went on to graduate with honors from the University of Puget Sound in 2003 with degrees in business and mathematics. He is currently employed with the investment firm Goldman Sachs as a senior financial analyst in the company’s Seattle office.

Each year Harvard selects a class of approximately 900 from among the best and brightest young individuals in the world, according to Brit K. Dewey, director of admissions at Harvard.

“We aspire to find leaders who have the highest standards of integrity and who understand that leading is a privilege,” said Dewey.

Grabner and his wife, Lindsey, who is working toward a graduate degree as a pediatric nurse practitioner at the University of Washington, currently live in Mercer Island and will be moving to Boston this fall.
