When he graduated high school, Daniel Christman didn’t have much use for the idea of community college.
To his mind, it had a stigma attached.
Fast-forward several years, and Christman brings a new perspective to the table.
“Everything I thought initially was wrong – it’s a fantastic place to begin, with friendship, diversity and opportunity. We’ve been given voices,” said Christman, who embraced his experience at Northern Virginia Community College so much that he rose to become vice president of the student government on the Loudoun campus and the student representative to the NOVA College Board, its governing body.
