So glad to see so many of the students I was at Clarke with. That was 2 1/2 years of my life, but what an impact Clarke has had on my life. All those late night snack fest and studying and practicing piano, for so many hours. Some of the best memories I have of Clarke are always centered around The Circle and the Women’s Dorm. That was the home away from home and I hated to see it all change. Would love to hear from friends from 82-84. Hope to see you at the reunion in April. My email is dderrick@bayspringstel.net

I attended Clarke to play baseball and ended up making a lot of friends that year. I left to attend another school the next year and lost contact with most rather quickly. Several years ago, I drove by the school and just sat at one of the tables in front of the dorm. I could remember nearly every face and every conversation. We've all moved on to better days though. Isn't it funny how simple our lives were then; we just didn't know it.

I greatly appreciate the time I spent at Clarke College from 1982-1984. I am in Knoxville, TN as a Marketing Executive and am single. I have been able to stay in contact with a small number of friends that I had the opportunity to play basketball and baseball with on the Clarke College Panther's teams. I hope to hear from other Clarke friends and acquaintances. Please feel free to e-mail or contact me by some other means.

Good news! Since I last posted (about two years ago) my wife, Kristi, has given birth to two sons! They are both happy, healthy, and massive boys. Our first son, Gus, is now a 1.5-year-old, joyful, blued-eyed, blonded-haired beast -- he is a solid 35 pounder Our second son, Avery, was born June 26th, 2007. Avery is a peaceful smiling little fellow who is also surfing down the right slope of the bell curve. At birth Avery tipped the scales at 9 lbs. 12 oz. and has been packing on the pounds ever since.

I fear we will be eaten out of house and home soon. Please send 50 lbs. sacks of corn.

I'll try to post some family pictures soon, and I'll look forward to reading some of your posts.

Take care,

David Gibbon

It has been 20 years since we roamed the streets of Newton, MS. I didn't know this website existed until Rusty Foster told me about it. I still see Shane Harrington, Todd Allen, and several other baseball players from the 80s. Was saddened to learn that Coach Gibbon lost his wife a couple of years ago. Would love to see the ole gang again. I would like to know if there is another reunion. I have driven through the campus a couple of times. I am married and have three children(3,4, and 6) I am the baseball coach at East Webster High School and have been coaching for 15 years now. Please contact me at the email below.

Wow!  I did not know this website existed until I came across it looking up old friends on facebook.  I often think of Clarke and the wonderful experience I had there.  I met so many people that were inspirations to my life and I think of them often.  I would love to reconnect with each of them.  I am living in Orange Park, FL and have been married for the last 12 years.  I have been blessed with a wonderful husband and son,Jackson who is 11 years old.  I feel I was led to this website, and hopefully others will be too.

Hello All,

I didn't officially graduate from Clarke, but spent my first 2 years as a music major building a wonderful musical foundation and understanding of true worship. I was at Clarke from 1983 to 1985, then I transferred to Delta State.

I moved to St. Louis, MO in 1994 to attend Covenant Seminary. I'm still here married, teaching private music lessons, selling books & antiques, and some freelance music work. 

I would love to hear from fellow classmates.
