Clements gifts $100,000 to benefit Kilgore College athletics, student-athletes

Noted local philanthropist and KC alumnus Mike Clements has a motto that he distinctly stands by: “When life becomes about everyone else and not about you, great things can be accomplished.”

Clements fully embraces this motto with a gracious gift of $100,000 to Kilgore College athletic programs to benefit student-athletes.

“I’m blessed to be in a situation where I am able to give back to change students’ lives, one student at a time,” Clements said.
