Geordie Daniel is graduating with a B.S. in Teaching & Learning and has been a Resident Advisor for UH Student Housing and Residential Life, a Mentor for the UH UScholars program, Peer Assistant for the UH New Student Orientation program, and was recently inducted in the inaugural class of the National Residence Hall Honorary.  “He has always been a shining light in our program, and represents UH and the College of Education in the most positive manner,” said Education Advisor Alyssa Adame. “He carries himself with confidence marked by joy and laughter. I am overwhelmed with joy for Geordie as he is honored by the Senior 27 Honor Society!”

“Starting as a freshman here at UH, I had no idea what it meant to become a proud Cougar,” said Daniel. “Through my years, I found the beauty that defines our University: the diversity, the accolades, the professionalism, the leadership, the pride, and being the Powerhouse that our city and nation needs.”

Daniel plans to begin teaching math in a Houston area middle school and, in order to better provide for K-12 students, hopes to eventually complete a Masters of Education program.
