Mark Tulchinsky Memorial Teacher Grant

History

Tarkington Traditional School Principal Mark Tulchinsky devoted nearly 40 years of his life to the education of South Bend's youth. And even after all that time, he never forgot a name. It has been said that “he had a knack of looking past a person's gray hair and crow's feet and seeing the child he taught so many years ago.” In 1968 he began his teaching career in South Bend at Perley Elementary. Since then he has served as a principal at Jefferson and Monroe elementary schools and at Tarkington Traditional. It would not be possible to fully describe the impact that Mark had on the South Bend community. We remember him with the “Mark Tulchinsky Memorial Teacher Grant.”
