Staff Member of the Month: Daniel Rivera

Each month Scholar Athletes highlights a deserving employee with the Staff Member of the Month award which is nominated and selected among SA staff. In October, we recognized Daniel Rivera, now in his second year as the Program Assistant at Boston Green Academy (BGA).

Daniel never responds with “no” when asked to help.

He rallies Zone Members and gets them excited about anything. Daniel’s welcoming and loving presence has single-handedly transformed BGA’s intramural programs all because of his passion, dedication, and commitment to providing Zone Members with the best experience possible.

In addition, Daniel plays a huge role in molding the younger Zone Members into respectful, confident leaders around the school. His willingness to do whatever it takes to make sure Zone Members are succeeding on & off the court and in & out of the classroom is admirable and doesn’t go unnoticed.


Daniel also recently got married, congrats Daniel! And, he got a major haircut! Daniel is pictured here with colleague Colin Kiley, to whom he gave a huge shout-out to for a similar fresh cut during his Staff Member of the Month acceptance speech.
