    Mr. Lark,

    I have been hearing your name on the radio recently and wondering if you could be the same Vercie Lark who was in the Joint Systems Engineering Program at Central State University in the 1980’s. Then I found this website with your picture confirming that you are, indeed, that same person. It was so good to hear of your success. I remember you as one of the students who helped us lay the foundation for the B.S. degree program in Manufacturing Engineering at Central State. Therefore, I wanted to thank you for that contribution, congratulate you on your career success, and wish you and your family continuing blessings in the future.

    Professor Emeritus

      Hi Dr. Grissom, it is indeed me. I have tried several times to find a way to reconnect with you and thank you for all that you did for me and the others who were in the program. I along with my family have had a great life as a result of the learning and support you provided while I was at Central State. I still remember the contest (project) where we built bridges to see who could design one that was strong enough to hold up after dropping a weight on it but light as well. You we’re always patient with us and provided me with the confidence to make it at Wright State. I hope you are well and life has been great as well. Are you still living in the area around Central State? If so, I have to stop by when I am in Ohio to catch up. It’s so great to hear from you. I look forward to connecting with you when I am in town again. I will email you when I am traveling back that way. I’d like to also reconnect with the school. Over the past year I’ve emailed and called to connect with the Dean over the college and Alumni organization with no success. All my communications never been answered and I gave up frankly. If you have contacts to provide and help me reconnect and begin giving back to the school that launched my career that would be great. I am on the CEG department at Wright State and a Trustee at Avila University here in Kansas. It would be great if I can play a more direct role helping the program at CSU and the students who are starting their journey. I will be in touch soon.

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

      I’m no longer the tech expert so suggest checking out word press site directly to find the answer on this one.
