About the LifeChanger Grand Prize Winner: Mr. Clark is a mentor to countless kids in need of a father figure at Trinity HS. He took the position as custodian thinking he would keep at it until he could find something better, but 24 years later, he still hasn’t found it.
When he sees someone who is struggling and needs help, he reaches out and gives them the support and encouragement they need, even taking some of the kids in and fostering them himself. He tells them to make good decisions and not let anyone else define who they are. He holds the students to very high standards and shows them that he genuinely cares, and is not there just for a paycheck. As a result, the students don’t want to disappoint him, work hard and eventually succeed.
Charles Clark is the 2012-2013 LifeChanger of the Year Grand Prize Winner! He was announced as the winner of the $10,000 cash award, $5,000 of which will be donated to Trinity High School, at an awards ceremony on March 8th, 2013, in Key Biscayne, Florida. His win was featured on The Washington Post, WFAA and KRLD and here are pictures from the ceremony:
