Nathan McDaniel – Student Foundation Scholar

28 Jun



Nathan McDaniel was one of this year’s Student Foundation Scholarship recipients.  Nathan was a member of Student Foundation for three years and served as the Director of Foundations of Excellence.

It would be easy to say that Nathan was an involved student, but that would be an understatement. During his time at Texas State, Nathan served as president of the Texas State Associated Student Government and president of his fraternity Pi Kappa Phi.

Nathan was involved with Stelos Alliance for three years and continually strived to help spread the mission of the organization.  Nathan took part in the inaugural class of the Housley Principled Leadership Program and was a recipient of a Student Foundation Scholarship in 2012.

When asked about his favorite leadership moment, Nathan talks about his experience campaigning for Student Body President.

“The final three months of planning, campaigning, and winning the election for student body president was truly a memorable time,” said Nathan.“Putting together a team, motivating them to work hard, sharing a vision, speaking to numerous students, and finally winning, was a wonderful feeling.”

Nathan graduated in May with a degree in Political Science. He plans to continue his education by attending law school in the near future. Currently, Nathan is interning for Texas representative Donna Campbell.

Nathan is a lifetime member of the Stelos family and a Stelos Megastar.

In April, Nathan McDaniel, Political Science junior, received a 2012 Student Foundation Scholarship – making him the final Stelos Superstar from Texas State University this year!

Not only did Nathan shine bright out of the competitive Student Foundation applicant pool, he has left his mark on several other student organizations. Primarily, Nathan is the 2012-2013 Student Body President of Texas State and we’re proud to say he is an alumni of the Stelos Alliance’s Housley Principled Leadership Program – a seven week leadership course offered free of charge to extraordinary students at Texas State University.

“Winning the Student Foundation Scholarship was so amazing; knowing that my growth as a leader is recognized by this amazing organization was really encouraging,” McDaniel said upon receiving his scholarship award.

Upon delivering the award, Bill Poston, the President of the Stelos Alliance, said, “Nathan is an original member of the Housley tribe – we’re proud of what he has accomplished thus far and even more excited to see the legacy he leaves at Texas State as Student Body President.”
