Marjorie E. Arnsdorff '64, Newest Member of Heritage Society
Marjorie E. Arnsdorff 64, the newest member of Country Days Heritage Society, has a longstanding connection and commitment to The Savannah Country Day School. She attended The Pape School for grades 1-3 on Drayton Street and SCDS from grades 4 -12. Her father Herman L. Arnsdorff was one of the original donors to Savannah Country Day School.
As both a graduate and faculty member, Marge has committed 26 years to Savannah Country Day. During her tenure as a teacher, she chaired the SCDS Middle School Science Department and her students' science projects were recognized at the local, state and international levels. She is proud that her students have become research scientists, physicians, teachers and outstanding citizens.
Marjorie has set up a Living Trust. She created a scholarship stipulation--the MARJORIE E. ARNSDORFF and FAMILY Scholarship for Country Day in the Trust. She is dedicated to maintaining the traditions of her family and looks to return the consideration SCDS gave to her son, Chris '99.
After Country Day, Marge graduated from the University of Virginia. She completed her master’s work at Eastern Kentucky University and the University of South Florida. She has taught and chaired departments, and has been a science coordinator for twenty-two years at all grade levels. Moving from teaching to Educational Publishing in 1999, she traveled nationally for McGraw-Hill Publishers and was a sales territory manager for Pearson Education.
Her heart is in education, and Country Day is so thankful.
