While we are selfishly sad that Chris is departing, we are excited for his new adventure and the advancement of his career to serve as Southwest Area Engineer for the Natural Resource Conservation Service. Service, is what motivates Chris. Before coming to us as a graduate of WSU, he served our country in the first Gulf War as a combat engineer.
In his employment application to the District he wrote “I am interested in working to help as many farmers continue farming as is possible…. I would like to contribute back to the farm community.”
For nearly twenty years with the District he has done just that. We could not be prouder of his accomplishments no less of which is the high esteem he is held in the farming community and the assistance he gave to keep them in business while conserving natural resources.
Like his mentor Bill Bonsen, he will hold a special place in our memory for his indefatigable work ethic and generous caring of his fellow man. Please join with us in thanking Chris Clark, husband, father, farmer, engineer and friend.
