Arundel Comm. College student finalist for national award. Congrats to our friend Danny Brannon & Right Turn of Maryland


Daniel Brannon fought back tears as he spoke of going from childhood addiction to recovery in his 40’s. He recounted those along the way who never gave up on him through countless stints of rehabilitation, homelessness, imprisonment and failed attempts at sobriety.

Now sober for nearly five years, Brannon, 48, graduated from Anne Arundel Community College in May with an associate’s degree in applied science focused on addiction counseling; he now works at Right Turn of Maryland in Owings Mills. Brannon’s triumphs have made him a finalist for the Pearson Prize for Higher Education, a national award honoring college students who serve their communities.

We tip our hats to Mr. Danny Brannon for all that he has achieved – despite having many road blocks in his path. He is living proof that with hard work, persistence, and dedication one can get over any hurdle. Mr. Brannon works out for Right Turn of Maryland in Owings Mills and has assisted the legal team at Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake (SZL) with many cases. We simply wanted to take a moment to recognize his achievements as he dedicates his life to recognizing the achievements of others. For more information on Right Turn or Mr. Brannon’s services, feel free to contact Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake at (410) 927-5137 or contact us.
