Darnell Pearson to attend Northwestern Masters Degree Program in Medill School of Journalism

Meet Darnell Pearson, senior mentor at Kidz Express. Darnell has actively been involved and apart of the KX family since the age of 14. Now at the age of 24 Darnell has been accepted to the prestigious Northwestern Masters Degree Program for Sports Media at the Medill School of Journalism. This is an exciting time in his life but he is ready for the new but also challenging opportunities that will be presented to him. Darnell is an inspiration to not only the kids that attend the program but for the community as a whole. Growing up in the inner city of Chicago (South Austin) he has been through what some people might call insurmountable obstacles, but that has never stopped nor hindered his thirsty for knowledge. He draws his own inspiration from his faith, family and the Kidz Express program. Darnell is ready to start a new chapter in his life and continue on his road to success.
