Daniel E. Shaw
Daniel E. Shaw entered Making Waves in 1991 as a student at Richmond’s Adams Middle School, where standards were low and peer pressure discouraged academic achievement. With the help of Making Waves, he accelerated his learning and received unwavering support from high school through graduate school. A graduate of St. Mary’s College High School, Morehouse College, and the UCLA Anderson School of Management, Daniel is now an associate marketing manager at General Mills.
