“I thought it would be good for students to look at past events and relate it to current events,” Clark said. “Students would be working in groups and analyzing each event and debate about them and talk about how they were similar. The service project was to go to the Oklahoma City Archdiocese, which has a help center for undocumented immigrants.”

Gayle Fischer, St. Gregory's director of teacher education, said winning a DaVinci award requires someone who is scholarly and willing to put in the extra effort.

“It was good timing with the topic of immigration, and it was a good lesson,” she said. “You can't send a bunch of high school kids down to Haiti, but they can go down to Catholic Charities and work with immigrants.”

Clark is a member of the university's basketball team in addition to maintaining a 4.0 grade-point average. He will begin student teaching in the fall.
