President's Message

Photo of Dr. Paul JonesTo the Darton State College family, alumni, friends and supporters, let me say it is an honor and a privilege to serve you during this transitional time. I have been here for only a few weeks and am already aware of the strength, compassion and vision that Darton has for our community as well as our positive impact on higher education, social issues and the economy of Southwest Georgia.

My only agenda is to help Darton State College continue to provide the same high-level service to students that we all have come to expect. Our leadership team is poised to work with the students, staff and the community to move this institution forward in a positive and significant way.

Over the past several years, Darton has built amazing momentum as a college, and it is my desire to continue this good work to provide excellence to our students and the southwest Georgia community.

Go Cavaliers!

Dr. Paul Jones
Interim President
