Giving to Rocky Mountain College

Darius Henderson

Darius Henderson, a senior at Rocky Mountain College has been playing basketball for as long as he can remember. A transfer student from South Los Angeles, Darius’ passion and dedication for the sport led him to Rocky to play basketball and further his dreams of higher education. While he never imagined he’d leave urban Los Angeles for Montana, he found Rocky Mountain College is a college with professors who care about him and team and classmates that will be friends for a lifetime.

Inspired by the environment he grew up in and the lack of mental health awareness in his community, Darius made the decision to major in psychology at Rocky Mountain College. He has a strong passion for mental health awareness and empowering people to recognize that mental health is just as important as physical health. He has even started his own podcast focusing on the mental health of students during the pandemic. After graduation in May, he plans to attend graduate school and hopes to one day become credentialed as a psychodynamic therapist and sports therapist.

None of this would be possible had it not been for scholarship assistance. These scholarships played a huge determining factor for Darius being able to attend RMC.

“I know without a scholarship I would not be able to attend and my education would have stopped at the junior college level. As a result, I am forever grateful for Rocky and the opportunity that has been given to me. I would like to let our donors know that I wholeheartedly appreciate you providing support for those who are less fortunate and allowing people like myself an opportunity to better our lives and make an impact on the world,”  shared Darius.
