The Clemens-Clarks – a Family with Promise

Sometimes all a family needs is a lot of heart and a little extra lift. After spending most of their lives being told they couldn’t, the Clemens-Clarks are putting their hearts into proving they can with the support of Wisconsin Promise.

Tony, a youth with communication barriers, was the first to enroll in Wisconsin Promise. His whole family joined in when they saw him succeed at his job in their community. His siblings began working too, and Promise helped send his dad back to school to become an auto mechanic.

They’re a family with Promise, working together to reach their school, work, and financial goals.
