Celebrating our Founder, Father Sillers

Jennifer Engleman
Founder’s Day-Father Sillers referred to St. Mary’s (his fourth school, opened in 1994 with only four classroom trailers) as the Jewel in the Crown for good reason; it was the first of his schools to be non-church affiliated and, in his words, “most in line with the world.” Including all faiths in a school that defines itself within the trinity of integrity, academics and spirituality, he believed, is the best way to prepare youths for the inevitability of a more globally-connected world… one that is intellectually diverse, interconnected by technology and perennially in flux. Today, we celebrate his birthday by wearing his favorite color red. #stmarysib #worldsizedhearts #worldclassminds #foundersday
