Best of 2016 in Nashville Education: #6 Daniel O’Donnell


I’ve had the opportunity to meet with the Nashville director of Stand for Children on a couple of occasions. The bespectacled young man struck me as passionate, introverted, and wildly intelligent. So watching the Nashville Witch Trials play out for weeks with Daniel as the object was depressing and I’m still trying to find him so that I can give him a mama-hug.
The opposition blasted Stand for Children for bold campaign donations, thereby making O’Donnell the face of “dark money” and illegal campaign activity. Mr. O’Donnell was thrown into the fire and tossed around in it, but came out like a shiny, new penny! Excited to see his next move.
