Don Clark bio info for Walk 112
My name is Don Clark. I attended East Texas Emmaus Walk # 47 at Daniel Springs in October of 2000 and sat at the Table of St. Luke. I am a member of Bonita United Methodist church in Nacogdoches, TX. My walk was the single most powerful spiritual event in my life. A fire was set in my heart that will never go out! Over the years I have met many people for whom the Walk to Emmaus has had a similar impact on their lives.
I was born and raised in Angleton, TX. My college education was interrupted when I was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War. I served in Germany from 1971-1973. Upon my return to the United States, I graduated from Stephen F. Austin with a BS and MS degree in Mathematics. I met my wife Pat while we were at SFA. We have been married for 40 years and are very proud of our 3 daughters (Heather, Katie, and Emily).
I retired from Lufkin Industries in 2007 after a career as an information technology professional. Since retirement, I volunteer and work at different places in the community where I can be of help.
I am looking forward to being part of the Walk 112 team. And with God’s help, we will shape ourselves into the image of Christ. And then use those 3 days to show the Pilgrims what having the spirit of Jesus within – can mean.
Thanks be to the ETEC board for thinking of me to be Lay Director of this walk. I pray for the support of our community’s 4th day community and will dedicate myself to insure that Walk 112 will be the “best walk ever”.
