Under his leadership, the Park District launched community programs and opened facilities and field houses in neighborhoods across the city. Mr. Donoghue was also one of the original organizers of the Bud Billiken Parade, the oldest and largest annual African American parade in the country.
Donoghue’s academic approach is distinguished by a whole child approach that focuses on teaching the values of self-control, teamwork, integrity, commitment, kindness and so much more.
