9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels is among the 2012 Class of Henry Crown Fellows, the Aspen Institute announced today.  The Henry Crown Fellowship is designed to engage the next generation of leaders in the "challenge of community-spirited leadership," according to the institute.

Daniels led his foundation, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, in successfully opening the 9/11 Memorial first to victims' families on the 10-year anniversary and a day later to the general public. In the first few months of operation, the Memorial has had more than one million visitors.
