Deanna Thomas Clark

#144 Deanna Thomas Clark, Class of 1964
(A.A. Broadcasting)

I was in the first class that attended for two years and obtained a degree there. I was active in extracurricular activities and received the Outstanding Leadership award my freshman year. Following graduation, I attended Coe College where I majored in history and received my B.A. in 1966.

That was also the year that I married my husband, Glen, who graduated from the University of Iowa. I worked as a social service worker in Iowa, California, and Utah while my husband served for two years in the Army and attended law school for three years. Glen practiced corporate law and prominently served as a U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for 26 years.

I enjoyed a large variety of philanthropic leadership positions in our community of Salt Lake City, state of Utah, Western region and nationally and internationally. In 2009 we retired to the barrier island of Saint Simons Island, Georgia and enjoy participating in community activities. We have two children: Andrew and Carissa and one grandchild Vashti.
