In June, 2016, the Clark University community joined together to celebrate the life of Patrick Oroszko '03, and to mourn his passing. Pat was many things to many people: loving husband, father, son and brother; mentor, coach, teammate and friend.Within the Clark community, Pat was a respected alumnus and a dedicated leader among Clark Athletics and Graduate Admissions, and a dear friend to numerous Clarkies.
At the one-year milestone after his death, we spearhead an initiative to pay special tribute to Pat (affectionately nicknamed "Turtle"), and to create a place on campus for him to be remembered.
Through the generous support of those who knew Pat Oroszko '03, and those who share his Clark spirit, we aim to raise funds sufficient to establish a memorial bench in Pat's memory for placement on the plaza of the George F. Kneller Athletics Center.
Any donations exceeding bench installation costs will be directed to Clark men's and women's basketball programs, supporting the next generation of scholar-athletes.
Our campaign commences June 5 (the date we lost Pat one year ago). We invite you to generously join us in support of this meaningful tribute this month, as we reflect on Pat's contribution to the Clark community.
