Featured Alumnus/Contributor: Daniel Yang

Daniel Yang is a graduate of the University of Chicago where he studied Political Science and African/African American studies and Princeton Theological Seminary where he received a Master of Divinity. He is currently working as the Youth and College Minister at KPCoW and Chaplin at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx. His passion is working with the local church and the wider Church to participate in the ministry of wholistic reconciliation. He believes that responsible participation in the work of reconciliation requires cultivating one's intellectual sensibilities. Reading books is one practical way of cultivating the intellect, and by extension, participating in the work of reconciliation.

Daniel worked as a tutor/teacher at the Office of Special Programs from 2006 to 2010. He has developed great relationships with the students and strong friendships with the staff. He continues to inform us that he witnessed, first hand, how books enrich the student's live and ,more importantly, shape them to be charitable, loving people. With that in mind, he started a textbook scholarship in 2010 to help support graduating seniors attending a higher learning institution.
