James Clark was featured in the Posse New York Quarterly article, “Fox Rothschild Attorney Joins New York Advisory Board.” Full text can be found in the Fall 2014 issue, but a synopsis is below.

James C. Clark, a DePauw University Posse alumnus and strong advocate of public service through pro bono work, has joined the Posse New York Advisory Board.

According to Jim, his professional successes and educational opportunities can be credited to Posse. As the fifth of six children, Jim was aware of the financial strain on his working class family. A phone call from Posse President and Founder Deborah Bial in 1996 welcomed him as a DePauw Scholar.

“The team is everything,” Jim notes. “You want to build a well-oiled machine, developing people’s confidence along the way and making sure that everyone is armed with what they need to succeed.”

Jim is inspired by the passion with which Posse’s board members support and advocate for the program across the country and marvels at how far the Posse program has come, praising the vision and commitment of Posse’s supporters and partners.

“Posse has taken on an amazing force,” says Jim. “I envision Posse Scholars as elected officials and eventually a Posse Scholar as the President of the United States.”
