More than 60 years ago -in 1953- the Marks brothers graduated from St. Vincent de Paul School in Newport News, now known as Peninsula Catholic High School. John Marks and his twin brother James, who both resided in Newport News for decades, were born on Aug. 16, 1934, and later moved to Williamsburg. John recently passed away at the age of 81, and bequeathed a donation to his former school in the amount of $319,491.18. James Marks recently presented the check to Principal Janine Franklin to be used for financial aid scholarships.
