Day #SeniorSpotlight: Tyler Watkins

Jennifer Collins | February 22, 2021 | 268 views

A Darlington student is made up of many things. None of which is average. We help our students develop their interests, passions and pursuits, because we believe every individual has something to contribute. We also believe that only when you're 100% you, are you 100% Darlington. 

Here at Darlington, every student’s path is different. We think that's a good thing. 

In this #SeniorSpotlight get to know Tyler Watkins, a 14-year day student from Rome and this year’s student body president.
