McDaniel Family_Michael_Marty_Kevin_Bud_11172014_250squareOur son, Michael McDaniel, is a 2004 graduate of Jesuit High School. During his years there, he received an excellent education which prepared him well for a successful career in the engineering field. The math and science departments at Jesuit were outstanding, and in many courses, the teachers used college-level textbooks. We were pleasantly surprised to discover this when we visited several college bookstores during Michael’s senior year.

Schools such as Jesuit — with stellar teachers and a challenging curriculum — are hard to find. We feel blessed that our son had the privilege of receiving a superior education at Jesuit. By financially supporting Jesuit, we hope to make it possible for other boys to receive the quality education that Michael experienced at Carrollton and Banks.
