Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame
The Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame was established to honor those who are making a significant difference in the lives of youth and adults with disabilities through mentoring and to raise awareness about the importance of mentoring for individuals with disabilities.
The Hall of Fame's namesake, Susan M. Daniels, devoted her life to improving the lives of others with disabilities. As a person with a disability who achieved enormous professional and personal success, she had significant impact as a senior policy maker, as an inspirational speaker and teacher, and as a mentor to hundreds of individuals.
In 2015, the National Disability Mentoring Coalition named 25 outstanding leaders as the first inductees into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame - 25 champions marking the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. These inductees were selected for their demonstrated commitment to mentoring and for their impact on improving the lives of people with disabilities.
Nominations were submitted between January and April for inducting individuals and programs into the Class of 2016. You can find the full list of 2015 and 2016 honorees on their respective pages.
