Along with his role as assistant director of the Academic Resource Center at Saint Anselm, Horton also serves as Chair of the Saint Anselm Staff Council, and spends his time volunteering on and off the Hilltop. 

“It is an honor to be recognized amongst many committed people, dedicated to making the Manchester community and the local New Hampshire community better,” says Horton.
