Mrs. Fairchild grew up at Highland Academy in Portland, TN. Her degree in office administration was obtained at Southern Missionary College (which is now Southern Adventist University).

Mrs. Fairchild volunteered at Midland before coming to work here twelve years ago. She loves the students, parents, and staff, and works to make Midland the very best school possible.

Anyone who knows Darlene knows that she loves music and loves to bake things in her kitchen.

You'd be surprised to know that...

Mrs. Fairchild has coordinated and/or catered 50+ weddings in the Kansas City area - many of them for Midland alums, Midland staff, or parents of Midland students.


Mrs. Fairchild and her husband Dave have lived in Shawnee for more than 35 years. They have three children, all Midland alumni. Beckie is an operating room nurse at Cox Medical Center in Branson MO, Rindy works as a Physical Therapist at Children's Mercy South in Overland Park, KS, and after working for three years as an RN in ICU at Shawnee Mission Medical Center, Christopher is back in school again working on his CRNA degree.
