Robert Hutcherson - Class of '65
Copperas Cove, Texas
For the past year or so some of you good folks have been asking, "Just who the heck is this Hutcherson guy, and what does his family look like?" Well, for both the interested and disinterested here is the whole clan. You will see from left to right our oldest daughter Cindy, Roberto, Miss Mary, grandson Bryan Karns, (world's greatest) son-in-law Ed Karns, and youngest daughter Suzanne. For those of you whom we have not seen in some years, you will have to admit that Bob did right well in choosing Miss Mary as a mate and the Lord Himself provided the lovely daughters, son-in-law and Bryan, the world's most brilliant eight-year-old.
No response solicited!:-)

WOW! For so many years I have wondered about the people of Clarke. My wife Peggy and I came back through Newton several years ago and got the privilege of seeing Dr. Melton and Mr. C. Memories are as vivid as yesterday about my two wonderful years there.
Peggy and I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. Our newest is 8 weeks old.
After leaving Clarke I attended UAB and Sanford University. I also found that God was calling me to be in business and fulfill my Christian obligation there. I have spent the last 35 years in the finance field. About 5 years ago I got real brave and changed fields completely. I am the Business Manager for a Chevrolet dealership. Peggy is administrator of our church (First Methodist Cullman, she converted me). I would love to hear from former classmates. I have thought about you often.

Richard "Dick" Brand - Class of ‘66
What fond memories of 1966, I almost made the true commitment to Jesus while at Clarke. Sadly I came close, but that only counts in horseshoes and handgrenades. About 7 years later after a stint in the Army and a marriage, I met the Saviour under unusual circumstances. I thought I had committed the unpardonable sin and it took a long time to find out I had not. But, thank God for His grace. I made an irrevocable decision to follow Him. I have been a self appointed missionary on many job sights and basically anyone who will listen. Some folks think I'm a nut, but they thought that before I was saved. Knowing Jesus on a personal basis has been the most exciting, frustrating experience a person can have.
Thank God for it.
During the time of soul searching, thinking I could not be saved, God showed me a scripture in Zec.3:2 "is not this a brand plucked out of the fire"
Bless you all and thanks for the Christian influence.

WOW! Hello to all my Clarkeite friends and fellow classmates of 1966! It only seems like yesterday that we were walking the halls of Clarke College and giving Dean Vaughn all he could handle. My wife(Susan)and I had planned to make the reunion this year but it was a toss up of doing that or my granddaughter's sixth birt-day party in Destin, FL. If you are a grand parent you realize that making the decision was not too difficult. I will definately miss seeing all of you and reminiscing the "good ole days". Susan and I have celebrated our 32nd anniversary this year. We have two daughters, two granddaughters and one more on the way. I recently retired after 35 years as an auditor/investigator for the US Dept. of Labor Quality Control Program in MS. My wife and I re-opened our advertising company here on the MS coast doing publica-tions on a small scale basis for select clients. We have purchased propery in Southern Georgia where Susan is originally from and may
eventually build there. We are active in our church life here in Long Beach and with other things in the community. Big hugs to all. Dale A. Foy

Hats off to the planning committee for the 1967 class reunion which was held in Newton on July 27-28! It was an excellent event that also featured members of the '66, '68 and '69 classes. Once a family member, ALWAYS a family: the Clarke family still lives! Thank you for your tireless planning, searching, and implementing of this event.

Administrative Staff from 1977- 1992
Last evening I was meeting with the Kemper Baptist Association. Mary Margaret Sullivan Smith ('65) came to the meeting and shared she was so glad to see me. She had just received a call from Suzette Severs Rogers ('65). Suzette shared with her that her husband Ross had just went to be with the Lord. I shared with M about our website and got the information from her to share with you. Ross had pancreatic cancer and had been sick a while. This is her address should anyone desire to send her a note - Suzett Severs Rogers, 2209 Field Lane, Mansfield, TX 76063. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I am certain she would love to hear from you at this time in her life. Ross had served as Minister of Education in a church in Texas.

What a joy it is to have a web site such as this that we can all still have the closeness that the campus offered to us for many years. I was so excited after having come to Clarke to visit to become a student there and graduate in 1966. Then after attending William Carey and New Orleans Seminary, I was employed as Secretary/Youth Director at Temple Baptist Church in Hattiesburg.
After serving there for two years I married Bill Williams whom I met while attending Clarke) from Hickory. We have two children and two grandchildren.
God has blessed us with two children that also serve Him. Our youngest (daughter) is presently serving as a Journeyman in East Asia. A joy of my life was to go back to Clarke and serve on the administrative staff. It was so rewarding that the Lord gave me the opportunity to financially assist many students in being able to attend through means of the Financial Aid Office.
My life was truly blessed to see Him work in the lives of many He had called. It was a sad day to have this campus close it doors to a service that had been so vital for so many years. I have learned though that whatever circumstance comes to us we must allow Him to have it and then great things can be accomplished through Him. It is wonderful to have this site where the Clarke family can still stay in touch.
It is great to see so many that have posted a message and shared about their lives since Clarke. It makes me feel so warm inside to see how the Lord is using each of you to carry out the mission He gave you and you have responded. Please help us get the word out about this site. I would like to say to Ginny that I am so thankful God equipped her to be able to make such a wonderful contribution to build this web page for the Clarke Family. Thank you Ginny.
