Message from our new Alumni Board President La'Quata Sumter

Darton has played an important part in my life for more than five years. It was where I earned my Associates of Science in Computer Information Systems; formed lifelong friendships and defined my purpose in education. As the 2013 – 2014 president of the Darton State College Alumni Association, I have the privilege of serving as an ambassador for our beloved alma mater. I look forward to impacting and giving back to the institution that contributed so much to my development.

Alum Chris Long signs with San Diego Padres

Darton right-hander Christopher Long’s ultimate dream may have come true sooner than expected, but it figures that a kid who heaves a 96 mph fastball is used to things happening quickly.

The Zebulon, Ga., native signed a MLB contract with the San Diego Padres after just his freshman year with the Cavalier ball club. He was picked up in the 23rd round and is now entering Rookie Ball in Phoenix, where his Arizona League Padres will play 56 games in the next two-and-a-half months.

 

And he’ll play as a pitcher – a position that he’s taken in only 19 games.
