Civil Engineering Student Gives Back to Community

Joseph Daniels

Civil Engineering student Joseph Daniels III took part in a St. James Missionary Baptist Church's annual Make A Difference Day, along with over 100 other volunteers.

On August 27th, Daniels participated in the Make A difference day where he had the opportunity to give back, and help paint the walls of LifeSource International.

“He presents himself as a leader, one that is eager to learn, and self-motivated, all attributes needed to succeed in whatever life throws him.”, said Ernie Heysmfield, professor and advisor of Daniels.  “However, what impresses me most about Joseph is his maturity and drive.  His work outside of his engineering studies is simply an extension of who he is.”

Joseph Daniels is a doctoral student perusing a degree in civil engineering with a research focus in structures.

“Volunteer efforts like these give me the opportunity to give back to the community that indirectly supports me in my pursuit of a doctoral degree in engineering.  As an engineer, our number one objective is to hold paramount the safety, health, and welfare of the public, and that is rooted in intentional and authentic service.  I thank St. James Missionary Baptist Church for giving me these opportunities to help those in need.”
