Welcome to Summer Session with your host Charles Thomas. Summer Session is sponsored by Forest Of The Rain Productions and is a part of its Living Education eNetwork. Forest Of The Rain Productions’ mission is to expand the voices of educational stakeholders. The voices they spotlight help create a richer dialogue which leads to a diverse exchange of knowledge and ideas within the educational landscape.
Joining Charles on today’s Summer Session is Mr. Darnell Jackson. Charles and Darnell will discuss "Leadership and how the 48 Laws of Power relate to Black Men" Mr. Jackson is born and raised in Dowagiac, MI, has excelled academically, athletically, and socially. His analytical, curious, inventive, altruistic and compassionate traits guide him.
Darnell graduated from Dowagiac Sr. High (2000) and went on to pursue a degree in Business Management & Information System (2004) from The University of Notre Dame.
While at the university of Notre Dame, Darnell held various leadership positions (NSBE President, Wabruda Chair, OIT Manager, Freshman Retreat organizer, etc.) but none more important than his unofficial/informal position of Big Brother to many underclassmen that touched him during his time there. “The greatest satisfaction is not only knowing that you’ve guided someone down the right path, but knowing that you’ve also shown them how traveling the ‘right path’ is possible, every day.” – A perspective that continues to drive Darnell.
