Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Greg Clark and I am one of six Ag teachers at Joshua. I will be in charge of lamb and goat animal projects as well as the Livestock and Meats CDE teams. I will be teaching the Livestock Production and Advanced Animal Science courses.
Both sides of my family are from Joshua and I attended Joshua schools through the 5th grade where I was also a Jr. FFA member and showed steers, pigs, and sheep. My dad took a job teaching Ag in Blum my 5th grade year so we moved down there in 1995. I finished school at Blum where I was very active in the FFA chapter and served as chapter President my Jr. and Sr. years. Upon graduation, I attended Texas Tech University where I was extremely involved in the judging program. I was a member of the 2003 Wool Juding Team, 2004 Reserve National Champion Meat Judging Team, 2004 Meat Science Quiz Bowl Team, 2005 Horse Judging Team, 2006 Livestock & Meat Evaluation Team, and the 2007 National Champion Livestock Judging Team. I graduated from Texas Tech in 2008 with a double Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science/Interdisciplinary Agriculture and again in 2010 with my Master's Degree in Meat Science.
My wife Kristen and I have been married since 2015 and we have a baby boy named Clayton. Kristen and I live on a small farm on the south end of Johnson County where we raise American crossbred show cattle. My wife is also the 4-H Extension Agent for Johnson County.
I will be starting my 4th year teaching at Joshua this fall. I am super proud of my kiddos! In the 2018-2019 school year we were able to place lambs and goats at every major show we participated in. The Johnson County show was good to us as well. Not only did we place several students in the Premium Sale, but we had several students receive showmanship accolaids as well. Joshua FFA's Livestock Judging Team were State RESERVE CHAMPIONS which qualified our team to compete at the American Royal contest in Kansas City, MO in October. Our Meat Judging Team were District Reserve Champions and Area Reserve Champions as well and made it to the state contest.
I will be starting my 11th year as an Ag teacher in the fall here at Joshua and I am looking forward to working with the students and FFA members and their animal projects!
I can tell that this will be an exciting year and I want to thank you all for letting me be a small part of your child's life!!!
