Benchmark School is celebrating 50 years of transforming children's futures. We are proud to share the first major celebration of our 50th Anniversary year. As COVID has curtailed our plans to gather and celebrate in person, we have turned to the medium of video. Through video, we are exploring and sharing our past from the time of our founding to present day.
We'll be producing five videos over the course of the year—one for each decade of Benchmark's history.
To begin, we have revisited our founding decade: the 1970s. Listen to our founder, Dr. Irene Gaskins, and other pivotal players in Benchmark's history, reveal the stories behind how our school came to be.
Now, please enjoy the first video in our historical series:
