A Helping Hand
Lark, like Bradley, said his experiences were expanded early on when he was part of the busing program that sent students from West Dayton to the East Side: “Eric and a lot of folks in my era were in the first wave of busing across town. All of us had our eyes opened. I got to experience things many of my contemporaries who stayed in West Dayton did not. Lark and his wife have partnered with the Varsity Club and made a commitment for $10,000 in scholarships each year for DPS student-athletes.
