Clark is an Atlanta native who has always been very involved in improving
his community. He has started several civic programs, such as Atlanta
Volunteer Action, Volunteer Action, Inc., The Big Buddy Program, and
Career Action. In 1993 he opened the Consumer Action Center, an advice
service for consumer questions and staffed by over 140 volunteers. He has
built, with his listeners, five homes in Atlanta for Habitat for Humanity
with plans to build three more in 2000.
Clark founded a travel agency in 1981 that he built into a very successful
chain with locations across metro Atlanta. He sold the company in 1987 at
31 years old and retired.
He found his way into public life almost by accident. While he was living
the life of leisure, he was asked to be a guest on a radio show about
travel. Clark's new career just appeared out of nowhere.
