A lasting memory that I have of Dan is my experience with him in his campaigns for class president. Dan asked me to serve as his campaign
manager. I really enjoyed being able to help in his efforts. The thing that really stays with me about this is the way he conducted himself. To me, what was the point? Who brought us together the way he could? Who was the friend of everyone, no matter who they were, no matter what they did? Who had the respect of all of his peers? Even though I saw him as a shoe-in, Dan never assumed that success would be a given. He always campaigned to the end, never counting on anything, never having arrogance about his position. He ran a clean, honest campaign, with full effort through and through. Honorable, selfless, and unassuming. How many of us today can still learn from this?
