Welcome to Episode 23 of The Darlington Podcast!

In this episode, Head of School Brent Bell talks with two students who shared their thoughts on Darlington’s Honor Code with the student body at this year’s Opening Convocation ceremony. Mary Mac Pittman is a senior day student from Rome and is president of the Upper School Honor Council and Ward Jennings is a fifth-grader from Rome. You'll also hear the speeches given by Mary Mac and Ward who each shared their thoughts on the importance of Darlington's Honor Code and living a life of integrity.

The most respected tradition at Darlington School, and the key to our community, is that of honor. The school motto, “Wisdom more than Knowledge; Service beyond Self; Honor above Everything” is the driving spirit behind our student-led Honor Code. To make the ideals expressed in the Honor Code effective and to enforce the code when it is violated Darlington has an Honor Council composed of representatives from grades 9-12 who are mentored by a faculty advisor.
