“I would encourage everyone to take a few hours out of their busy schedules to make the world a better place – the sum of many small good deeds is a better society for all!”
Daniel Ward is a senior majoring in Chemistry with minors in Mathematics, Astronomy, and Biology. He is a member of the Smittcamp Family Honors College and a founding father of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity at Fresno State. Upon graduation he aspires to attend medical school and earn an MD, with the ultimate goal of serving as a Flight Surgeon in the United States Air Force. Daniel actively volunteers with the Bulldog Pantry, Community Regional Medical Center, and with the Richter Center’s Reflection Facilitators. In the past, Daniel has worked on service projects with Make-A-Wish, the Sierra Foothill Conservancy, Fresno State’s Alternative Spring Break, and many others. This is Daniel’s third year as a Richter Center Ambassador, and he has shared that he absolutely loves the responsibility of encouraging his peers to engage themselves in service work for the betterment of the community. Daniel has been involved with service since an early age, crediting his parents with teaching him that “an inclination towards service for the betterment of society is the best trait that a person can have.” He hopes to inspire students on campus to stand up and volunteer. Last year, Daniel was named a Newman Civic Fellow for his service efforts.
