Although hailing from one of the smallest towns in the smallest state, Warren, Rhode Island, Dan Simonds has big expectations for the JVC experience. A recent graduate of Gordon College on Massachusetts’ North Shore, he enjoys finding the story in his surroundings through journalism. On a given Saturday, you can find Dan running through your nearest woods trail, investigating the works of the local art museum or rooting on the hometown basketball team. Now, as a JV he is teaching 11th Grade College Readiness at Detroit Cristo Rey High School.
