Mark K. Shriver, Georgetown Preparatory School alumnus, Class of 1982, was recently named the President of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School in Takoma Park, MD. Mr. Shriver will be the School's first lay president, succeeding Father Michael Conway, SDB.
Mark has significant leadership experience serving the youth, particularly those who are at-risk and living in underserved areas. After serving as the representative to the Maryland House of Delegates from 1995 to 2003, he led Save the Children's U.S. programs, which reached more than 1.1 million children in rural communities in 2020 through early childhood education and hunger and nutrition services.
President of Georgetown Prep, Rev. James Van Dyke, S.J., said of Mark's new role at Don Bosco, "We at Prep are always gratified to see our graduates taking the mission out to the world. Jesuit schools hold a special place in their hearts for the Cristo Rey mission. Having been associated with the founding of Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit, I am especially delighted to offer Mark my heartiest congratulations and to promise our support. His thoughtful energy and commitment will be a terrific asset for the wonderful work of Don Bosco Cristo Rey."
Mark received his B.A. from The College of the Holy Cross in 1986 and a Master's in Public Administration from Harvard University in 1993. His latest book, Pilgrimage: My Search for the Real Pope Francis, was published in 2016. His New York Times and Washington Post best-selling memoir, A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver, was published in June 2012. Mark and his wife, Jeanne, have their three children. #AMDG
