Campus Champion

Near or far, Danielle Ben-Horin’s passion for service often takes her places she has never seen. That again will be the case during spring break, when the sophomore inclusive special education major travels to Central America to work on the College’s Belize Zoo Transformation Project. Danielle and classmates already have raised thousands of dollars to make the zoo more inclusive for people with disabilities. During spring break, they’ll help pave accessible pathways. Danielle’s work, however, won’t end overseas. In Cortland, the College’s Special Education Club, Delta Phi Epsilon sorority and the YWCA’s Bridges for Kids program all benefit from her service-first approach.
