High School 9:12 believes that leadership is the key to success. The John Donahoo Jr High School 9:12 Leadership Academy was created to provide high school students with an experience of a lifetime. We have partnered with schools from all over Jacksonville, FL to provide selected students with an exclusive lesson taught by author Jack William on how to become a confident, competent, and effective leader. Students will have a full day of learning and collaborating with students from different schools. Every student will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the day.
The Leadership Academy was named after Mr. Donahoo in honor of the legacy he left.
Mr. Donahoo was born in Jacksonville, Florida on December 28th, 1938 and died May 28th, 2019. He attended Lee ( Riverside) High School, the University of Florida, Stetson University, Jacksonville University, Cumberland School of Law, and Boston University.
John William Donahoo Jr. was a servant leader in the City of Jacksonville. He had a heart full of love that overflowed, leaving an indelible imprint on hearts and minds of so many. In the words of his daughter. "He left it all on the field."
He was a steafast supporter of education, beloved by those who knew him professionally and personally. His servants heart for his family, friends, community, and church, guided a life devoted to the love and care of others.
