Actor and Clark alumnus Sam Elliott has provided a voice tag for Clark College Foundation‘s upcoming local television commercials.The voice tag will be part of a series of television ads which will start to air Monday, Oct. 7, on local channels KATU and KGW. The commercials are intended to raise awareness of Southwest Washington’s premiere community college and its fundraising campaign.

“His powerful and familiar voice will help us raise awareness of what Clark College offers,” says Lisa Gibert, president/CEO of Clark College Foundation. “With $2 million left to go in our fundraising effort, our hope is that Elliott’s connection to Clark will encourage others to offer their generosity as he has, in support of student learning.”

Clark College is currently in a $20 million comprehensive fundraising campaign called Ensuring a Bright Future: Campaign for Clark College, in support of program excellence, scholarships and facility renovations. The college has just over $2 million left to raise to meet its private-sector support objectives. For further details, visit
