Answering the call for education

In 1970, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church looked to establish a non-profit Christian school. The purpose of the school, located on church grounds, was to provide children in grades one through six, with the finest quality education and citizenship training. Thomas M. Donahoo was one of the founders and Trustees of the school, and under their guidance St. Mark’s Episcopal Day School opened in September of that year, with just one class for each grade, one through six.

Now, with more than 400 students on the nearly six-acre campus, St. Mark’s stated philosophy is dedication to excellence in education, and to prepare students “to reach their academic, social, and spiritual potential while recognizing each student’s individuality in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.” Tom has remained involved with the school over the years.
