On October 22, Max Downey ’17 and Bernadette Bautista ’17 received the Jefferson Award for Public Service for their years of community service through the Child Help Foundation. Downey serves as the President and Bautista serves as Vice President of the Child Help Foundatin Youth Board.
The mission of the Child Help Foundation is to help children with disabilities. Several students from Saint Mark’s are members of the organization and was started by Nicolo Bautista ’16. The group has been the two-time, consecutive recipient of the Jefferson Lead360 Award in recognition of their “Children Helping Children” project, where they have raised funds to support various music and arts programs and have volunteered at Camp Lenape.
Saint Mark’s, a college preparatory Catholic high school, inspires young men and women to create a better world, one more pleasing to God and more helpful to others, by modeling faith, excellence, humility and integrity.
