Darrell Pirtle didn’t participate in student organizations his freshman year.
Now a senior, he cites that as one of his biggest mistakes. “Who knows who else I could have impacted?” says Darrell, the president of Jagathon, IUPUI’s Dance Marathon benefiting Riley Hospital for Children.
Since joining the Jagathon committee in his sophomore year, Darrell has impacted countless students and families, helping to raise well over $100,000 for Riley Hospital. The experience has changed him forever as well, exposing him to travel, education, and a career path he wasn’t anticipating.
