“Clark is one person I will never forget, he is the definition of a passionate teacher. Thank you so much for all the encouragement and opportunities you’ve given us in your class.”

Morgan Hines, 2022

"I don’t think that any other class has the same amount of diversity as FS and that is what makes this class so unique. Everyone is different, they all have their own set of personalities that make FS, FS."

Nirmal Phuyal, 2021

"Financial services has given me the best three years of my life. I could never be more grateful for the friends I made, the connections I have, and the many people that cheered me on along the way."

Isaiah Shields, 2020

"I will always treasure the knowledge and memories I have made in this class."

Joe Delaney, 2019

“I am so grateful for my three years in Financial Foundations and Financial Services. I have learned so many life lessons in here and this class was definitely the best class I had at Northwest.”

Adam Dearinger, 2018

“Financial services pushed me to be a better person.”

Kaitlyn Hayes, 2017
“I will remember this class forever because I have learned so much valuable information. Financial Services has prepared me for the real world more than any other class I have ever taken.”
 Kobe Brown, 2016
“Financial Services teaches you so much about real life ... I have learned so much through this class that I never knew before and I still want to learn more!”
Emani Thompson, 2015
“I found a family within the FS classroom that I wouldn’t change for the world. Even on the cloudiest days, Sterling dancing, Keshun singing, or Bungabong stealing snacks could help me find a silver lining. I will forever remember the people and atmosphere in Financial Services.”
 India Williams, 2014
“Financial Services has definitely been the highlight of my high school career. This class has been my biggest and fondest memory of high school and I’m glad that I was able to be a part of it.”
 Brandon Dalton, 2013
“Financial Services is the best class I’ve ever taken.”
Kelsi Garibay, 2014
“Wow, what a great year this has been in FS with a lot of good memories … memories that I will always look back on.”
Austin Piotrowski Baker, 2015

“Financial Services has ended up being the most influential class I have had in high school because of the people I have met, the trips I have taken, and everything I have learned.”

Marilyn Oduogu, 2016

“My favorite memory from this class would be when we went to Nationals in Boston. I loved my competition and it was a great experience that I was grateful for. I couldn’t have done half the things I’ve accomplished in this class without the guidance and advice from Mr. Clark … I will carry this knowledge with me throughout my life.”

Mikayla Kaminsky, 2017

“Financial Services has taught me so many things that will help me throughout my life. I am just so glad that I was given the opportunity to be included in this class and experience all of the adventures that we have been through.”

Drew Mitchell, 2018

"I'm not sure what it is about this class, but it is a warming and cozy atmosphere. Perhaps it's the people or the beanbags. Either way, I was able to relax and be comfortable while working everyday."

Celia Slaughter, 2019

"Mr. Clark is so much more than just a teacher. He is a mentor, role model, father figure, and so much more. He goes beyond what is expected in every element."

Jackson Gehring, 2020

"I became friends with everyone in Financial Services, and I think that everyone became friends with me. Social lines don’t matter, and you treat everyone the same. It is the closest thing to a family that isn’t actually a family."

Ana Lu Gehner, 2021

“Thank you Clark for everything, all your patience, love, jokes, support, etc. I can say with confidence that you made a huge impact on my life.”

Angel Soriano, 2022

“Financial Services gave me the opportunity to experience people and places I would have never experienced if I had not joined.”

Trinity Robinson, 2021

"My journey definitely would not have been possible without you, Clark. You have truly changed my life and I will forever be grateful. You never doubted me, always supported me, helped me bring my ideas to life, helped me prepare, made sure I had everything I needed. I'm going to be the first in my family to go to college, and I honestly don't know if I would have gone if I hadn't joined FS."

Kaleb Amofa, 2020

"I have never enjoyed myself in a class the way I loved being in this one."

Anna Lemon, 2019

“This class was definitely my favorite class throughout high school … and it wasn’t even close. Through all the class field trips, group projects, games played, and other activities where you get to have fun and learn at the same time, it has been phenomenal. The memories in this class are countless.”

Rajeh El Qasem, 2018

“I chose to join Financial Services, and I am glad that I did because FS changed who I was and made me into who I am. With these twelve years of high school coming to an end, Financial Services has definitely made the last two the most memorable.”

Noah Sammons, 2017
“My time in Financial Services for both my junior and senior years has been amazing. I’ve learned so much and have done things I would never have been able to do had I not decided to apply for this class sophomore year.”
Marisa Fears, 2016
“We had so many different kinds of people and personalities in FS … everyone was introduced to something new and got out of their comfort zone.”
 Thai McCowan, 2015
“To say that being in Financial Services was a journey would be an understatement … it was an experience, a brother/sisterhood, a mentorship, and the creation of unforgettable memories.”
 Alex Bungabong, 2014
“This has always been … and still will always be … my favorite class and I will never forget about it.”
 Jibri Walker, 2013
