Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Ivory Clark is an educator. He is a principal. Ivory Clark has been passionate about making a change in the 1st Ward.

After graduating from Augustana College he sacrificed his time to volunteer and tutor children. Our community can really flourish under this type of leadership.

From the young people I talked to in the 1st Ward, they look to Ivory Clark as the person they can call for help. It does not matter if it is a problem with their homework or a problem within their family unit. And because Ivory Clark is respectable to everyone these children respect him. He works hard in every situation I have seen him encounter.

Now, that is the kind of example you want your children to see. The 1st Ward needs to see a change for the better.
