TV Commercials Air on Local Channels
Television commercials highlighting Clark College faculty, staff and students – and featuring a famous guest voice – started airing on local stations in October.
Actor and Clark alumnus Sam Elliott provided the voice tag for the Clark College Foundation commercials.
The television commercials began airing October 7 on local channels KATU and KGW. The ads are intended to raise awareness of Southwest Washington’s premiere community college and its fundraising campaign.
Clark College is currently in a $20 million comprehensive fundraising campaign called Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College, in support of program excellence, scholarships and facility renovations. The college has $2 million left to raise to meet its private-sector support objectives.
Elliott, who graduated in 1965, also made a generous donation to the fundraising effort. He said he has fond memories of his alma mater and recalls receiving “great support” from Clark’s faculty.
