AU Student Honored for Service to Homeless

Servant Leadership is defined as “a preferential awareness of the needs of others in the resolution of problem.”

Junior, Darrius Mitchell embodies this value. Beginning at age 13, Darrius recognized the homelessness issue in the Indianapolis area and began giving out water and food to those in need.

On Nov. 9, his selflessness was recognized by WISH-TVKroger, and Coca-Cola, and they surprised him with a truck full of water bottles and hygiene kits to support his servanthood. But it gets better…Darrius also received a $5,000 check, a TY Hilton jersey, and a VIP Indianapolis Colts experience.

Darrius gives all the credit to his mother, who is unbelievably proud of her son and the man he is, and as a campus, we are proud of our brother Darrius as well.

Darrius’s story will premiere on WISH-TV Nov. 21, 2018!
