Ms. Clark was an individual of excellence who exemplified our firm’s mission.
Charlotte W. Clark, Dedicated to Serving Her Community
Charlotte W. Clark joined Teague Campbell on February 23, 2007, as the firm’s front desk receptionist. Prior to working for Teague Campbell, Mrs. Clark was a dedicated public servant who worked with the Attorney General’s office. Firm members learned very quickly that Mrs. Clark was not only dedicated to her family and church, but her community as well. She and her husband, Wilbert Clark, were founders of the Juniper Level Baptist Church Missionary Food Bank where they dedicated many hours handing out food to the less fortunate in the community. Mrs. Clark, otherwise known as Mrs. Charlotte, gave so much of herself to others through various causes in our community. Mrs. Charlotte was an important part of the Teague Campbell family and inspired so many of us to strive for excellence. It is our hope that this year’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship in honor of Mrs. Charlotte will encourage and carry on her generosity of spirit.
