When I was at Clarke College, I remember the excitement over the birth of my first niece, Ashley. Many on campus joined in as I waited to become an uncle. Memories of Dr. Read telling me my sister had gone to the hospital still are fresh in my mind. Can still see Gay Luke and Karen Howard running into the cafeteria announcing to me that I had a niece. (You know, I never knew what happened to that food tray that I pushed aside.) Then, Johnny Sykes drove me to Laurel, MS to see my first niece. He drove 80 miles an hour because we had to get back for play rehearsal. Wow...that was April of 1985. She was even brought to my graduation in May for all to see.

I tell you this because; I almost lost this wonderful child recently. She attempted suicide. My heart is heavy for her and I ask my old friends, the ones who gathered around me at her birth, to join with me in lifting her up again. She is in special care, but will need lots of help.

Over the last several years, my life has taken me away from Mississippi and the Clarke College family. As I get older, I forget a lot. Yet, the memories from Clarke are still fresh in my mind. That is why when I thought of Ashley's birth, I thought of all of you. Thanks for your prayers.

I attended Clarke as a Mississippi College student from 1986-87. I'm currently living near Laurel and farming cattle with my Father. I cherish so many memories of Clarke College and the wonderful friends it led me to. Mrs. Vera Melton called me a couple of weeks ago, and is doing fine. I was excited to see the alumni page and look forward to catching the next reunion.

Love in Christ,

Hello all Clarke Alumni,  Clarke College held (and still holds) a special place in my life. Having come from a very large high school coming to Clarkes very small campus and enrollment was a great change for me. I know it was the Lord who directed my life there. 

This upcoming reunion will be 20 years since I left Clarke and would love for some of my friends and acquaintances from that time period to get together with me. I noticed that there are very few people that have posted from this time period and wonder where everyone has gone. Please email me and tell me what you think.


Update: 8/18/12

It has been a long time since I have visited this site.  I have a daughter in College now and is following my footsteps with a music education major.  She is now a junior at the University of Mobile.  We were discussing jobs and working while going to school and it brought back a memory I had forgotten.  I was paid (a very small amount) to secure all of the doors on campus at night.  I remember having the keys to every building.  I sure did love my experience there and would not trade it.
Love to hear from anyone that knew me.

Clarksville, TN

Hey, Lisa, Mason (Ainsworth). It is me Clyde Lane, remember I gave you that friendship plaque. I still consider you a friend after all these years I see you got married.

Good for you, I hope that he loves you and treats you right. But I know that you would not have married him if he did not. I have been so out of touch with everybody. I just learned not long ago that Clarke College closed. It is good that Calvary Baptist Church is having reunions I have a lot of good memories about being there I am sorry to hear that it is closed.

Your friend and brother in Christ.

Hello everyone,

I found the Clarke site and wanted to drop a note. Many of you may not remember me, as when I went to Clarke, I served a church as a Pastor and worked for the radio station, WMYQ, just down from the college. Most of my time on campus was for classes and then off to work or to the church. After serving as a Pastor for several years, I now travel full time as an evangelist and Christian Country music artist. The Lord has really been good in my life. I am married and have a son. Hope to hear from you. Be blessed, Morris Mott
