Mark Gardiner Hoyle
1972 - 1986

Mark Gardner Hoyle

Swansea gained national attention in 1985 when Mark Hoyle, a young hemophiliac who had contracted AIDS through a blood transfusion, was allowed to attend public schools. It was the first time in the U.S. that a student known to have the disease was allowed to enter public schools. The case came to national attention around the same time as that of Ryan White in Indiana, and helped many young HIV-positive children attend schools throughout the country. Mark Hoyle died one year later, and a new elementary school was named in his honor.


Mark Gardiner Hoyle Elementary School was dedicated on August 16,1992 and opened for the 1992-1993 school year. This school stands in tribute to and in memory of Mark Gardiner Hoyle. Given by the citizens of Swansea, a town where compassion and understanding prevailed, a town whose people can remember with pride that they cared.

Marks favorite saying was:
“A winner never quits and
a quitter never wins.”
