Clark studied Music Education at BSU and learned of Red Rock's need for a Music Director through BSU. Clark thinks of himself as a jack of all trades and ia able to learn a lot of new things. Clark has done an amazing job at aiding our tech transition in the last two years.
Clark's favorite scripture is Romans 7 because it shows that all people are deserving of love. This is a life lesson he tries to live by. He loves all outdoors activities. Climbing, fishing, and camping are my favorites. He loves the variety of outdoor opportunities Boise offers. He and his partner regularly enjoy much of the surrounding area.
