“Daniel is a dedicated, outstanding and caring student,” his faculty/staff nominator said. “He was instrumental in securing room-and-board scholarships for ROTC cadets and Military Science course credit through his direct coordination with the president, Admissions Office, Registrar’s Office and the campus provost.” Curtin is scheduled to graduate in May as a commissioned Army officer and will immediately begin serving his country.

Outside ROTC, he is a member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers and has been a volunteer Little League Baseball umpire for seven years.

Student of the Month recognition is bestowed by the Student Government Association numerous times each academic year based on nominees’ commitment, service, role-model behavior, academics, leadership and campus involvement.
