Marist School has announced that Clarence H. Smith '68 has received the school’s highest honor, the St. Peter Chanel Award. The award, named for the Marist saint who was martyred for his faith, is given annually in recognition of individuals whose selflessness, exceptional support, and enthusiastic leadership have advanced the mission of Marist School in a profound and fundamental way.
Marist School has announced its faculty and staff award recipients for the 2017-2018 school year. The award recipients were recognized at Marist’s annual St. Peter Chanel Society Recognition Dinner held this year on Wednesday, October 18 at the Atlanta History Center.
