Mark Allen Harden

May 6, 1971 — March 13, 2024

Mark Allen Harden passed away on March 13th, 2024.  He was born on May 6th, 1971 in Fort Riley, Kansas to his parents Rich and Diana Harden.  Mark was a graduate of Vandalia-Butler High School (1989), Wright State University (1995), and Marygrove College.  He dedicated his career to providing students with various opportunities whether it was in the classroom or on the court. Mark spent 29 years serving in education at Vandalia-Butler High School, Lakota Local Schools, Bethel High School (Tipp City), Cincinnati Christian University, Fairfield High School, and Sycamore High School. The love of sports inspired his career as an athletic director. In this role, Mark was able to mentor high school athletes as well as coaches and other people in the Greater Miami Conference. He most recently served as the athletic director at Sycamore High School since 2019. Mark was an avid golfer and loved being able to share those experiences with his dad, brother, and son. He always had a way of brightening up any room he walked into and used his humor to bring life to others. Mark’s wisdom and sense of comfort will be deeply missed.
