“Charles Guthrie rose to the top of an outstanding pool of candidates based on a combination of key skills and experience that fit with our vision for the future of Penguin athletics,” said Clark College President Robert K. Knight.
Guthrie said, “It is extremely important to me that student athletes at Clark have a positive experience while competing as a Penguin. I value their commitment to be successful in their sport, in the classroom and in the community.”
