It is a joy and a privilege to celebrate an unparalleled year of support in the life of our special community – one that works together and is driven by a common purpose. The inspiring generosity of our alumni, families and dear friends is simply amazing. The past year afforded opportunities to engage personally on and off campus with St. Mark’s students, faculty, volunteers, fellow parents and alumni in ways that had not been possible since 2019. The incredible power of many devoted St. Mark’s champions coming together to support our mission is truly humbling.
The Board of Trustees, Parents' Association, Alumni Board and student body provided exceptional leadership throughout the year in untold ways. As we gathered together for signature events at 10600 Preston Road and across Dallas, we were reminded of our distinct culture and deep commitment to every Marksman’s success time and time again. Parents, alumni and friends contributed a high watermark in philanthropic support with record levels of contributions to the St. Mark’s Fund, endowment and a new athletic complex while the Class of 2022 left an indelible mark on school history through the establishment of a financial aid fund. 2021-2022 was a historic year and we continue to look forward towards an even brighter future.
While there are many people in our community deserving of thanks, in particular, I am deeply grateful for the leadership and support of the Development Committee, and the partnership provided by Chair Alan Schoellkopf ’91. In addition, I would like to thank and recognize St. Mark’s Fund Chairs Maggie and Jim Moran ’01, Lowell Ku ’89, and Collin Lensing ’01, as well as the army of alumni and parent class agents and volunteers for their devotion and commitment. It is an honor to be a part of such a wonderful institution and your generosity and dedication are essential in making St. Mark’s such a special place.
It is with pleasure that we present the digital version of the 2021-2022 Annual Report. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive and interactive assessment of the activities and achievements of the past fiscal year.
Again, thank you for your steadfast support and for making the progress and accomplishments highlighted in this report possible. Your gifts have a profound impact on the everyday life of our School.
