Senior Rand Smith has been on the Darlington campus for fifteen years. When he graduates in the spring, he will be leaving everything he’s ever known, but he has advice for the younger students.

Serving for your school is something Darlington embodies so well. It’s a part of the motto, “service beyond self,” and Smith is involved in a lot of activities and clubs.

I play soccer for the high school team, treasurer on the student council, a tiger expert,” Smith said. “I am a leader in Summerbell house, in the Global scholars’ program, and play the trumpet in the wind ensemble.”

Being on Darlington’s campus for fifteen years, Smith is leaving behind the place he grew up, taking a lot of memories with him.

“The community,” Smith said. “I have grown up with most of these people, so it will be different being away from my life here at Darlington.”

Setting an example and being a leader is sometimes a hard thing to do, but Smith has learned how to be a leader and knows how to make the most out of the Dar experience.

“Opportunity presents itself in many ways here at Darlington. Most of the time we don’t think much of it. But I encourage you to take every chance you can to do something different or new. You will not regret it because it will impact your life, even if you do not recognize it immediately.” Smith said.
