Vandal Alum, Campus Leader to Grand Marshall 2022 Homecoming Parade at U of I

September 22, 2022

MOSCOW, Idaho — A vandal alum and longtime campus leader who was critical to establishing women’s athletics at University of Idaho will serve as grand marshal for the 2022 Homecoming Parade on Oct. 1, capping a week of events.

Kathy Clark worked for U of I for 25 years, notably serving as senior associate athletic director and senior women administrator for athletics. Clark helped start the first Vandal volleyball team in 1974, leading the team as head coach during its first season to a 22-6 record and to place third in the Northwest College Women’s Sports Association. Clark was inducted into the U of I Hall of Fame in 2007 for a lifetime achievement in sports.

“U of I and the Athletic Department will always have a special place in my heart,” Clark said. “I have said more than once, U of I is a special place with special people doing special things. I try to return for a few events each year, but to come back with the honor of being the Homecoming Parade grand marshall is beyond exciting and memorable. Thanks for the tremendous honor and as always — GO VANDALS!”

Clark is available to speak to the media. Request interviews by contacting Marie Duncan at marie@uidaho.edu or 208-885-5366.
