Darryl Daisey, 1983 graduate, is a life member of the Penn State Alumni Association and a member of the Golden Lion Society of the Alumni Association. In 1987, he received an outstanding service award from the department of business logistics.
Darryl, a Supply Chain Manager for American Water in Voorhees, NJ since 2003, has worked in the supply chain management field for Dow Chemical, DuPont, Dade Behring, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and IBM during his 27-year-career.
In November 2007, Daisey began to research and compile the “Penn State University African American Chronicles.” This was the first comprehensive account of the African American experience at Penn State and was distributed to alumni at the 2008 Black Alumni Reunion.
Daisey facilitates the Penn State Black History Project efforts, along with the Office of Educational Equity, Africana Research Center, African and African American Studies Department, Penn State Alumni Association, and the Paul Robeson Cultural Center.
The project includes continued research and documentation of African American students, faculty, staff, and organizations, as well as multimedia preservation and presentation. The vision of the project is to create a “collective memory” that will help inspire and empower students and staff, as well as to reconnect African American alumni to each other and the University.
His twin brother, Darnell, is also a Penn State alumni.
