NWTC student named Newman Civic Fellow

Wednesday March 13, 2019
Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) student Daniel Diebold has been named a 2019 Newman Civic Fellow by Campus Compact: a national coalition of more than 1,000 colleges and universities dedicated to campus-based civic engagement.
 Daniel Diebold - Newman Civic Fellow
Diebold is one of over 200 community-committed students named Newman Civic Fellows in 2019. Daniel is a first-year student in the Automotive Technology Associates Degree program. He serves as Vice President of NWTC’s Student Veterans Association, working to build funds to help other student veterans attend college.
Diebold also leads an effort to collect care packages for a recently deployed local National Guard Unit. He is dedicated to making life easier for veterans and their families by serving as a member of The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) to promote and support better healthcare, education, and resources for veterans and their families.
Daniel aspires to use his training within the Automotive Technology program to help veterans on fixed incomes access high quality vehicle care for affordable payments. He is passionate about ensuring that other veterans have access to secure housing and transportation.  “Since settling in Northeast Wisconsin, I began to wonder how I could use my skills and interests to help others.” Daniel explained in his Newman Civic Fellows personal statement. “The answer I found so often was simply getting a vehicle running.  After I complete my degree in Automotive Technologies, I want to set up a shop that helps people on limited incomes get their vehicles fixed with manageable assisted payment plans.”
The Newman Civic Fellows Awards honors the late Frank Newman, one of Campus Compact’s founders and a tireless advocate for the civic engagement of higher education. The awards honor the achievements of undergraduate and graduate student leaders who have taken action in pursuit of long-term social change, and who engage and inspire others in their communities through service, research and advocacy. The Newman Civic Fellows Awards are made possible through the generous support of the KPMG Foundation and the Newman's Own Foundation.
