Emerging Leader of the Year
2019-2020 Winner - Danielle Castellano (Upper Terraces )
Danielle is an amazing "behind the scenes" leader. She is attentive, caring, and always willing to play her part when it comes to a group setting. I have seen Danielle go above and beyond in the coordinating of logistics for programs, advocating for her residents, and the numerous hours she has spent on the executive board of the Residence Hall Association. I believe that Danielle will quickly become a prominent leader in her community next year as a returning RA.
