Dan is a Boston College presidential scholar, a four-time recipient of the athletic director’s award for academic achievement, an ACC postgraduate scholarship recipient, and a two-time Boston College scholar-athlete of the year.
The Weaver-James-Corrigan and Jim and Pat Thacker postgraduate scholarships are awarded to selected student-athletes who intend to pursue a graduate degree following completion of their undergraduate requirements. Each recipient will receive $5,000 toward his or her graduate education. Those honored have performed with distinction in both the classroom and their respective sport, while demonstrating exemplary conduct in the community.
