Eric Clark (pictured to the right) is our very first honoree. The award is named for him. Mr. Clark is a father in every sense of the word even though he never biologically fathered a child.
More than 25 years ago, he voluntarily mentored my four sons, sever of my nephews and countless young men of single mothers like myself. He has always been respectful and expected nothing in return except to see those young men grow into productive citizens.
