Longtime trustee term comes to a close
Ever since she first became a member of the Clark College Board of Trustees in 2003, Sherry Parker has been vital presence at the college, where she has faithfully attended not just board meetings but
also opening days, State of the College addresses, cultural events, commencement ceremonies—even when inmates were celebrating earning their GEDs through Clark at Larch Correctional Facility, Parker was there.
Last Thursday, however, Parker attended her last board meeting, as her tenure officially expired. There was little fanfare at the event; Clark College President Robert K. Knight had held a private celebration at his home to thank Parker for her decade-long service to the college. Even so, as each trustee rose in turn to speak, it became clear how valuable Parker was to the board.
