KEENE, N.H. — The Jonathan Daniels Center for Social Responsibility has secured enough funding to hire a project manager, according to a press release. The project manager will be located at the Historical Society of Cheshire County, which is the fiscal agent for the Jonathan Daniels Center. The Historical Society of Cheshire County’s director, Alan Rumrill, said that the Historical Society will be an excellent home for the Jonathan Daniels Center and its project manager. “We have set aside a physical space at our headquarters that will house exhibits, preserve artifacts and share stories associated with Jonathan Daniels,” said Rumrill. “His story is one of our most important stories to tell, and we hope it can educate and inspire people to engage in social responsibility for many years to come.” The project manager’s job description can be found at the Historical Society’s website: It is a 15-month part-time position for someone with skills in project management, planning and oral and written communication, as well as fundraising knowledge, website experience and entrepreneurial spirit. The Jonathan Daniels Center for Social Responsibility is an initiative that grew out of a dedicated group of Cheshire County individuals who began meeting in 2015 to create a center to commemorate his life and provide a space for self-reflection. Jonathan Daniels was an Episcopal seminarian and civil rights activist who answered the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s call for clergy to come south to assist him in his work in Selma, Alabama. On Aug. 20, 1965, Daniels was shot by a deputy sheriff in Hayneville, Alabama, while attempting to enter a store with a Catholic priest and two young African American women. In 1991, Daniels was made a martyr by the Episcopal Church, one of two Americans recognized as such to date. The vision of the Jonathan Daniels Center for Social Responsibility has inspired many community members to contribute towards establishing a physical space for the center and hiring a project manager to sustain it. Contributors include St. James Episcopal Church, the Putnam Foundation, the Kingsbury Fund, C&S Wholesale Grocers, the Protestant Episcopal Church of New Hampshire, and many individuals.
