St. Mark’s is fueled by the unparalleled support of our unique community and collective belief in our mission. The philanthropic commitment of our alumni, families and dear friends is simply amazing. The full breadth of on-campus and regional events for parents, alumni and grandparents afforded opportunities to engage meaningfully in the life of the school in Dallas and across the country. The singular investments of devoted St. Mark’s champions inspired us to dream big and achieve extraordinary things together.
The Board of Trustees, Parents’ Association, Alumni Board and student body provided exceptional leadership throughout the year in untold ways. Behind every philanthropic commitment is a relationship that inspires tremendous generosity. Parents, alumni and friends contributed a high watermark in philanthropic support for the St. Mark’s Fund and closed an over $30 million delta in funding for the Marksman Athletic Complex in just twelve months. The Class of 2023 exemplified the ideals of a Marksman by contributing to a facility they could not experience as students and paying it forward. 2022-2023 was a special year and was emblematic of our ambitious goals for the 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 Carl Sewell ’02, Chair of the Athletic Complex Planning Committee, St. Mark’s Fund Chairs Maggie and Jim Moran ’01, Michelle and Josh Lobel, Jon Myhre ’96 and B.A. Cullum ’99, as well as the army of alumni and parent class agents and volunteers for their commitment and advocacy. It is an honor to work alongside these partners at such a wonderful institution. Your generosity and dedication have such a tremendous impact at St. Mark’s.
It is with pleasure that we present the digital version of the 2022-2023 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 leave an indelible mark on our School.
