In 2015, five days after what would have been his 88th birthday, Miami Country Day School received acknowledgement of the distribution of gifts made through the John C. DuBois Living Trust. The school received over $175,000 and while this gift will never replace Jack, it reminds us of the love and devotion he had for children, education, and Miami Country Day.
For Miami Country Day School, John C. “Jack” DuBois provided a link to the past and through his gift helped to ensure its future. Jack had a 54-year history with Country Day. He served as a faculty member from 1954 to 1981, as a teacher of history, geography, English and Latin. He fostered the development of the school’s interscholastic athletic program, coached Varsity football, soccer and baseball, and in 1979 he was named Athletic Director and the Spartan athletic teams entered into a full-scale high school varsity program. In 1987 he was appointed by Head of School Bill Creeden, to serve as Alumni Advisor working with the Development/Alumni Office.
