Danielle Patton, an incoming first-year student, believes when you take something, you should give something back to balance the equation. Call it the math version of the Bible's lesson that to whom much is given, much is required. Serving others is a driving force in Patton's life and now has netted her a $40,000 scholarship, awarded $10,000 over four years, as the winner of a University of Dayton contest that invited prospective students to create a video describing what servant leadership means to them.
