Danielle Heckert is a second-year Rodman Scholar in the E-school studying Biomedical Engineering. Alongside being a first-year Resident Advisor, Danielle is also an EMT with the Charlottesville Albemarle Rescue Squad. When asked about why she is passionate about this work, Danielle responded, "To say this job is hard would be an understatement, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t so incredibly worth it. You get to be that person who’s there for people when they need you most, and honestly that’s what keeps me going every Friday night when I’m serving at the rescue squad.

We relish the opportunity for the Women’s Center to be part of the Community MLK Celebration each year but the lecture we hosted for the 2019 celebration of Women in the Movement was an especially fitting one as students and colleagues crowded Minor Hall to hear Brittney Cooper on January 22.
