My name is Don Clarke. I have been a businessman for over forty years. I graduated from Florida State University in 1969 with a B.A. Degree in Economics and Hotel & Restaurant Administration. I have a great family that I am extremely proud of. That is all that needs to be said about me, personally.
The value of a good business is its people and those they serve. Those of us that have the "Vision" to build a business will always depend upon others to help build it. Having begun this business over 22 years ago, I have found I am not as important as are those I work for and work with. I am merely fortunate to have crossed paths with so many terrific people.
Rather than bore you with a lot of trivial footnotes of past accomplishments, I ask that you join me in supporting some efforts I care deeply about. Hopefully, that will tell you a little more about ...me.
WOUNDED WARRIORS PROJECT
I support the Wounded Warriors Project in honor of my son, Major Kevin Clarke, my son-in-law, Major Shannon Worthan, my brother in law, Colonel Steve Skelton, my cousin, Ronnie Hadley, my dad, Colonel DG Clarke, USMCR-deceasedů.and those who they proudly served with.
ST. JUDES CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
I proudly support the St. Judes Children Research in honor of my mother, Nadine Clarke-deceased.
THE SALVATION ARMY
Having met Franklin Graham years ago at West Point, I know his work and ask you to join me in supporting his work.
YOUR LOCAL ANIMAL SHELTER
Take the time to bring wanted items including food, blankets, etc. Most likely they are underfunded and need your help. You will be glad you helped them.
