Dawn Clark-Lamb, Department of Transportation 

What do you enjoy most about working as a Loaned Executive on the OP campaign?

Meeting others from different State Offices and the impact of helping awareness of all the local Non-Profit Organizations in our community.

How long have you been involved in or volunteered with the campaign?

I have been given through the State Campaign for the past 20+ years, I started when it was a $2 minimum to donate!

What inspires you to give through the campaign?

I am inspired by my father’s Jim Clark Memorial Scholarship –which is administered by the Cosumnes River College Foundation and Our Promise, each year a student-athlete at the Community College is given $1,000 to continue their education at a 4-year University.  To date, we have given out $14,000 through Our Promise/ CRC Foundation.

  • California Black Chamber of Commerce to support the causes of the radio station.
