Supporting comments: "As a co-chair of Hope for Autism, Claire has thrown her heart into this work, and her own commitment to the program has enabled her to provide leadership and work successfully with a large and diverse body of student volunteers. Claire is also a gifted musician and serves as a mature mentor to young people in the Granville community. In addition to her on-campus commitments, it is a sign of leadership beyond the bounds of Denison that a student would be so highly regarded for her work in the community that they would entrust to her the care of their young children in matters of theological and spiritual formation on the one hand and children with autism on the other hand."
