Biography

Darius M. Cureton is a native of Charlotte, NC but has lived in Winston-Salem since 2001. He is a graduate of Garinger High School of Charlotte, NC. In the fall of 1996, Darius entered to learn at Winston-Salem State University and departed to serve in May of 2000.

During his matriculation, he participated in the WSSU Marching Ram Band, the Ram Ambassadors, and Campus Pals. He was inducted in to Alpha Kappa Mu, Honor Society and was a founding member of the Kappa Lambda Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi, National Honorary Band Fraternity, Inc. The following spring, upon graduation from WSSU, he began his matriculation at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University where he received his master’s degree in English and African-American Literature in December of 2001.

Since then, Darius has served on numerous university committees which include the University Assessment Committee, the Academic Athletic Council, and the United Way Campaign Committee. He has also served the Department of English and Foreign Languages in a variety of capacities including being the Chair of the Creative Writing Committee, being a member of the Department’s Assessment, Strategic Planning & Recruitment teams, assisting with the department newsletter, and being the technical liaison for the building’s classrooms and the content manager for the department’s webpage.

Darius’s passion is still teaching as he still teaches traditional student Freshman Composition Courses and accelerated Evening/Weekend Freshman Composition Courses each semester. His hope is that he can continue to help students gain a better understanding of English and writing as they are skills that are highly regarded in today’s society; as well as having a little fun while doing it.
