I am a proud Spartan Alum and Parent. We live on the eastern shore of Maryland, about an hour from school. At last count, I've put about 82,000 miles on my car since my kids started at Saint Mark's - and every mile has been 100% worth it! When we're not driving back and forth to school, our family enjoys spending time on the Chesapeake Bay.
