About Dr. Michael A. Clark
Michael A. Clark as a professor in the Department of Physical Education and Exercise Science, College of Education, Michigan State University. Before his employment at Michigan State University, he taught and coached for more than 20 years in the public schools of Michigan. Dr. Clark is establishing this endowment because he feels strongly that enthusiastic teachers and positive coaches can do more to shape the lives of their students than can possibly be imagined. He believes these teachers and coaches are critical to the success of the public school system, which so directly determines the well-being of our society. Dr. Clark came to Michigan State University as a freshman from Kansas in 1963. He was awarded three degrees from Michigan State University -- his B.A. in Elementary Education in 1967, his M.A. in 1968, and his Ph.D. from the Department of Educational Administration in 1977.
