William Richardson recently participated in Darlington School’s fifth annual Leadership Darlington program.

Leadership Darlington is a prestigious and competitive opportunity for alumni to engage with their alma mater and school leaders on an in-depth, personal level. The program is designed to increase the number of alumni actively connected with the school and develop the next generation of Darlington’s leadership.

Over two days, participants obtain an integrated view of Darlington, including the internal and external forces that affect the school's direction, and the challenges she faces. They also take part in an interchange with senior administrators and participate in discussions about the future of Darlington. The program featured keynote speaker Jere Drummond ('57), retired vice chairman of BellSouth Corp., honorary Leadership Darlington chairman, former chairman of Darlington's Board of Trustees, co-chairman of the Second Century Campaign, and a Distinguished Alumnus.
