A consummate educator and lifelong learner, Marcella always understood that the strength of Key’s program hinges on its practitioners' capacity to be innovative as they create dynamic curriculum to engage their students, and on Key’s capacity to attract the best and brightest in their respective fields. During her time at Key School, Marcella doubled the professional development funding and significantly improved both salaries and benefits for Key teachers. Her endowed fund will continue to support the people who breathe life into Key School each and every day.
When Marcella came to Key in 1999, the School’s endowment was just over $200,000. Thanks to her vision, budgetary acumen, and financial stewardship, Key School’s endowment hit a milestone and grew to over $10 million. This would not have been possible without the support of Key's donors. Her long-term goal was to diminish the School’s reliance on tuition income, enabling Key to further mitigate annual tuition increases as it begins to utilize its endowment to support the annual budget. Slowly but surely, Marcella ensured that we save for not only a rainy day, but also a bright and robust future.
