Posted By Alumni Office, mercredi 3 septembre 2014
David Clark1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Three years, 1962-1965.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
My father worked for the World Council of Churches.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Juanita Quin who was my homeroom and maths teacher in grade 6B in the primary school. She introduced us to Charles Dickens and inspired us to read, and play the recorder and to practice safety. And her husband ran the chess clubs in the upper level school.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
Chasing after the donut sellers at morning break for a sugar fix.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
Climbing Le Salève for the exercise and the views.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
Recently retired from Sam's Club Home Office. Have bought a retirement home in the Ozarks.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Inspiring everyone to work for world peace and a clean planet.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Become involved with politics: even at a local level you can have a tremendous influence on your own life and those of your friends and neighbours. Learn how to make sensible choices. Share the news early. Listen carefully to the Joni Mitchell album "For The Roses".

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Two close friends were Hussain Khan from Pakistan and Mani Sundaresan from India. In 1964 their cousins were likely shooting at each other in Kashmir. Yet we all enjoyed each other’s company. We bowled together, listened to the Beatles together, compared notes on girls together, played chess together and had lively discussions about religion. Having seen how well those two got on despite the animosity between their countries has given me unshakable faith that all of mankind and womankind can live together in peace.
