Nipissing students consistently impress as leaders, in the classroom, on campus and in the community.  Recently the university celebrated 25 student leaders at the annual Dave Marshall Leadership Awards.  Over the coming months, NU News will introduce each student leader to the wider community with a short article discussing their accomplishments and activities. Today, we are pleased to profile Daniel Scarpino, a student working toward a Bachelor of Education degree in the Primary/Junior division.

Scarpino has volunteered on campus and in the community in a variety of roles. He has been a Biidaaban Community Service Volunteer, St. Vincent Place Luncheon Assistant, Holiday Mass Volunteer at St. Gregory’s Catholic Church, Youth Basketball Camp volunteer for Little NBA & Small Ball, a Parish Usher at Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, a Soccer Coach for Sault Amateur Association and Steel City Rapids, and a referee for the Special Olympics Soccer hosted in Sault Ste. Marie.

On campus, Scarpino has also served as the Primary/Junior Division representative at the Ontario College of Teachers’ annual review of the Bachelor of Education Program at Nipissing University. He is a role model for his teaching colleagues and a devoted volunteer in his home community, as well as his new home here in North Bay.

Scarpino hopes to pursue a career in education, first as a teacher and later as an administrator. His passion and commitment to teaching the future generation will undoubtedly bring him success in his future career.

The university community is proud to recognize Daniel Scarpino with a Dave Marshall Leadership Award in the Community Category.
