This year will mark the 2nd Season for our mission of creating the next generation of innovative thinkers and leaders in the City of Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck. The Detroit Destination Imagination program is a collaboration of the Detroit Public Schools Office of Science Education and the Michigan Creativity Association, supported by fiduciary funds distributed to DPS via the Michigan STEM Partnership. Darnesha and Amanda are looking forward to, and expecting, a phenomenal year of growth as the Director and Vice Director of "DI in the D"!
Darnesha Vesey is a proud member of the Board of Director's for the Michigan Creativity Association (MICA), and Destination Imagination (DI). The program has become a lifestyle for her and her two daughters. It is a program that truly embraces the spirit of allowing youngsters to be active determinates in their own success! Darnesha is looking forward to her 5th Season of Team Managing and Appraising, with the goal of continuing to impact young minds through the gift of creativity and individuality as the Regional Director of Michigan's newest Region; Regional 8!!!
