Best Non-Random Acts of Kindness -- Educational (2003)

Daniels College Prep Program

Before he died, Bill Daniels, the cable entrepreneur, poured much of his considerable fortune into the Daniels Fund, which subsidizes numerous good works. But perhaps its most impressive accomplishment is the Daniels College Prep Program, which has helped hundreds of students attend college -- despite their "non-traditional" high-school profiles. The intensive pro-

gram includes college-prep workshops, summer seminars on a local campus, and volunteer coaches in the senior year of high school to help students prepare for college -- and, perhaps, apply for a Daniels Scholarship.
