Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame
The Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame was created 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 and as a mentor to hundreds of individuals.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the National Disability Mentoring Coalition has named 25 outstanding leaders as the first inductees into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame. These inductees were selected for their demonstrated commitment to mentoring and for the impact of their contributions on improving the lives of people with disabilities.
The initial class of inductees to the Hall of Fame were announced on October 1st, 2015 and can be found below. Nominations for the Class of 2016 were collected through May 1st, 2016, and are currently closed. Please join our mailing list or check back this summer for the announcement of our next inductees!
