Exercise Science major Dezarea Duckworth hails from Bryant, Arkansas, where she attended high school before accepting a basketball scholarship at WPU.
“I like to sing and hang out with my friends,” says Dezarea, now a senior at WPU. “When I am in Arkansas, I like to climb Pinnacle Mountain and swim, too.”
Basketball brought Dezarea to Penn, but she soon found herself surrounded by friends by joining Team Christ and being part of the worship team.
“My most memorable experience so far at William Penn has been deciding to give my life to Christ and change my life,” she says. “I really think making great friends is one of my great achievements here, and building relationships with new and different people from so many different places.”
