Goals in life:
"I wish to go to college in order to further my education and gain the knowledge I need to be successful in life. It has been my goal to go to college and better myself in order that I may, in turn, give back to my community and try to make a difference in our society."
What's important to Darryl:
"Out of all the activities that I am actively involved in, the focus of my life right now is receiving an education. An education will ultimately play a more important rule in my life than all of the activities that I am currently involved in."
Each week the Temple Daily Telegram profiles an outstanding Central Texas high school youth. Selections are made with the assistance of school administrators, teachers and other members of our Central Texas communities.
