This week’s Hometown Hero, presented by Hendrick Southpoint, is Lorie Clark! Clark heads up the Blue Ribbon Mentor Advocate Program, which provides guidance and enrichment to CHCCS students!

Founded in 1995, the program has helped generations of students find success and fulfillment inside and outside the classroom. Mentorship, advocacy, tutoring, social and cultural enrichment, college and career preparation, leadership development, and college scholarships are all part of the work the Blue Ribbon program does, and Clark’s work is instrumental to its ongoing success in its mission to improve the lives of students.
