David and Marcia MacLane Scholarship Endowment Fund

David T. MacLane was appointed The Country School’s first Headmaster in 1956. During his 11-year tenure, the student body grew from its initial enrollment of 13 to more than 100, the land on Opening Hill Road was purchased and the first school buildings were constructed, and the curriculum grew to embrace some of the hallmarks we know today – a robust and challenging academic program with an emphasis on creativity and community. "Mr. Mac," as he was called, also introduced several important traditions, including the annual MacLane Poetry Recitation. 
To honor the work and legacy of the late David T. MacLane, The Country School's first headmaster, and his wife, Marcia, a special scholarship fund was created in 2012.  Established by the MacLanes' son, Duncan '64, and his wife, JoAnn, the MacLane Endowment creates learning opportunities for those whose options were previously limited, benefiting both the scholarship recipients and The Country School community as a whole.

The David and Marcia MacLane Endowment for Scholarship is a perpetual scholarship fund, tied to the permanent Founders’ Promise Fund. Since its establishment only a decade ago, the fund has grown to $292,000, already helping to educate 16 students who otherwise could not have afforded to attend and become leaders at The Country School and then beyond.
