Meet the Legacy

We are building a legacy here at The Darden Group, LLC.

Building a legacy for my children and their children and for generations to come.

“We’ve got a responsibility to live up to the legacy of those who came before us by doing all that we can to help those who come after us” – Michelle Obama

As I sit back and reflect on my years on earth, I think about all the ups and downs, all the projects I’ve built, the people I’ve met, the impact I have had, and the things I have yet to do. During this reflection I think about my kids and what I want to leave for them. To make their lives easier than mine and to pave a way for their children.

In 2019, I decided to run for President of my four kids elementary school. It was the hardest job for so many reasons, but my kids were so proud. They were proud to say their mom was the president of the PTA. They helped with ideas on how to get more parents and kids to the meetings. They help me put food together. Most importantly, they wanted to attend every meeting. It was amazing to me to see their level of involvement and how proud they were to be part of something that positively impacted their school. They took ownership.

During that school year, I thought about what legacy could I leave for them.They were showing signs they were ready or at least showing signs they were willing to learn and take ownership of something. In December 2019, it was clear. I wanted to take my skills, experience and expertise and build a legacy for my children.

This legacy would consist of growing them up to know about and see entrepreneurship. To grow up and help build a company they could run in the near future. After school they could come to my job sites and projects and see physical buildings go up. They can be raised knowing how to build infrastructure and a business.

Working with The Darden Group, LLC, you not only see your vision into reality, but you are also contributing to the future legacy of the organization.

‘You have no idea what your legacy will be. Your legacy is what you do everyday. Your legacy is every life you’ve touched, every person whose life was either moved or not. It’s every person you’ve harmed or helped, that’s your legacy’ – Maya Angelou 

Every project, every person, every worker, every community, every corporation, every stakeholder, every user, I hope I have and will continue to leave a positive mark.

As my father always said, “May the works I’ve done, speak for me”.

Thank you Renee Hooker Drumgo, Owner of Royal Hues Designs for the wonderful illustration of my family.
