Caught Caring
Charles Clark
Charles Clark, who was featured in People Magazine as an inspiration to teens, spoke to the kids at VAST last week. Mr. Clark is a janitor at Trinity High School and often does motivational speaking to youth. He said many memorable things to encourage the children, but a few really stuck out... “Money doesn’t make you successful. What you do for others makes you successful.” And “Don’t let others tell you who you are or what you are.”  Charles has changed countless lives at Trinity High School. If you would like to read more about Charles, click here to read the People Magazine story .
