Danny Heumann ’91: Inspiring Future Generations
Danny Heumann ’91 is an inspiration to all those whose lives he touches. As the result of a car accident, Danny was paralyzed two weeks before he began his freshman year but showed unwavering resolve in attending Syracuse and now teaches others through motivational speaking. "The University stepped in and gave me reasons to live despite my situation. It was an incredible experience and this is my way of giving back." Though he is a young husband and father, Danny has already made a bequest that he knows will enhance the Syracuse University experience for future generations. "If it wasn't for the University, Syracuse alums wouldn't be the people they are today. If we can help future students reach their potential, that is what it's all about." He also believes that this gift will keep him closely tied to his alma mater in perpetuity. "In spirit, I still want to be part of the campus because Syracuse will always be part of my soul."
