A Strong Representative: Clark stands proudly on Qatari soil in front of a military exercise. This was one of the many exercises during Clarks deployment to the Middle East in 2019. Clark was asked (last minute) to fill the shoes as Qatars representative to his general. He handled all of the logistics for the Marine Corps and worked in the U.S. Embassy in Doha (in the office of military cooperation). Clark was also able to explore the country culturally and even saw the World Cup being set up three years in advance. It was really a great experience to be a more well rounded officer, and I learned so much about the Middle East, Clark said.

Students crowd IC Tunnel after school Friday. CCSDs mask policy, taken directly from Tri-County Health Department, states that masks are required at all times while students are indoors. However, many students take off their masks once they leave classes, often walking maskless through the halls. Some students think the vaccine affords them enough protection that they dont have to wear a mask any more, while others find masks uncomfortable or not worth the trouble. Whatever the reason, enforcing masks has been difficult at Creek.
