Tyreon Clark is giving back to the same community that made him the man that he is today. Clark is well known throughout the school district; at 26 years old he’s already taught the elementary school, junior high, and the high school. “I just make my rounds, visiting the schools” said Clark. “I keep telling them to just get me a GM key already.” The schools that Clark works in are home for more reasons than one; Clark went to the same schools that he teaches in today. “I feel like everywhere in the district is home” said Clark.
Clark runs the Boys to Men program at Parker-Bennett-Curry Elementary School, a program that rewards young men who exhibit good behavior throughout the week with a tie to wear on Friday. “If the kids dress for success, if they look good, they feel good, they act good, they are good,” Clark said.
