Deanna Thomas Clark, Class of 1964, A.A. Broadcasting

Deanna Thomas Clark, Story #144 on

COD 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 2 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.


Deanna also has a great memory.

Deanna recently won of our first Flashback Friday by correctly guessing the date of this photo. The aerial photo was taken by United Aerial Survey out of Tulare, CA, on Dec. 3, 1964.

We sent Deanna some COD swag and she quickly fired back a few photos of her own. According to Deanna, "In the postcard photos, I am the one with the white blouse and colorful border skirt. I was not scheduled to be one of the students in the postcards but I wandered by  and I think the photographer was so thrilled to see a student not dressed up that he moved me right into the postcards"



Thank you Deanna for being a great alumna and a wonderful member of COD's extended family!
