The Mark McDonald Fund is a student awards program. Dr. Mark McDonald, who died suddenly in 2022, was dedicated to students' achievements, opportunities, and well-being. He was a beloved Principal at Downers Grove South High for five years, followed by eight successful years as Community High School District 99 Superintendent until his retirement in 2016.
Student athletes in need who display dedication and good citizenship will be recognized at DGS and DGN.
We know Dr. McDonald would be pleased that his legacy will continue to help students who need a boost. Please consider a generous gift to this Fund.
