Activities/interests: A writer for the Bethel Park High School student newspaper, Hawk Eye, since ninth grade, Daniel is on the yearbook staff and an actor in the school play, “You Can't Take it With You.” He is a senior at Bethel Park.

Noteworthy: Daniel won two gold medals in the Pennsylvania School Newspaper Association's summer awards for his December concert review, “Clap Your Hands Say Yeah impress at Mr. Small's,” and his feature photograph, titled “Home of the (Blank)” by the school district and “Wreckage” by the association.
