Dr. Kevin Clark: The Man, the Myth, the Legend

Dr. Kevin Clark: The Man, the Myth, the Legend

From the front office to the golf links at Hains Point, Dr. Kevin Clark is an upstanding Yorktown Patriot. Finishing up his third year as our school’s principal, Dr. Clark isn’t where he expected.  

“I grew up not wanting to be a teacher. I enjoyed school, but I would sometimes get in trouble in class. I thought I would be an engineer, studied engineering, studied business and eventually realized education was a great field,” Clark said.

Lucky for us, Dr. Clark escaped the world of silliness and shenanigans to find his passion for the world of education.

“I’ve been a principal now for three years, and I haven’t really gotten to the point yet where I’ve started considering any other opportunities. I’d like to do this for a while and be here for a while,” Clark said.

Outside of school, Dr. Clark is an avid outdoorsman. You can catch him anywhere from the trail to the links, so keep your eyes peeled.

“I do a lot of hiking, running, biking, and I like to play golf. I spend a lot of time outdoors,” Clark said.

This experience outdoors led to an expert answer on what to bring with you if abandoned on a deserted island. If you plan on taking a long trip any time soon, heed this advice.

“I would probably bring some form of water filtration, a way to catch food like a fishing pole and a SAT phone to call my friends and family,” Clark said.

Let me tell you, if I was stuck on a deserted island with one other person, I would choose Dr. Clark. Not only does he have the survival skills, he also has the jokes and an outstanding taste in music. Here is a joke he told me.

Dr. Clark: What is Beethoven’s favorite fruit?

Me: I’m not sure?

Dr. Clark: Banananaaa (Sounding like Beethoven’s 5th Symphony)

He told me the joke wouldn’t translate well into writing, but I think I did a good job. I’m sure Dr. Clark has the important people in his life constantly cracking up at his good humor.

“The special people in my life are my wife Melissa, my two kids Cameron and Cora, my twin sister and my parents,” Clark said.

Dr. Clark is an awesome guy who loves the Yorktown community, and we are lucky to have him as our school’s principal.
