SRSLY Manchester Welcomes New Program Coordinator, Abbey Clark

Hi! My name is Abigayil (Abbey) Clark. I’m honored to join the SRSLY Coalition as the new Manchester Program Coordinator. Having grown up in Clinton, MI, I have many found memories of the Manchester Fireworks, high school sporting events and the Manchester Chicken Broil. I have grown to appreciate their small-town values and truly look forward to working within this tight- knit community.

Over the last ten years, I have been working with Michigan Medicine in a variety of administrative roles. In 2016, I had a tremendous opportunity to work with a grant-funded initiative dedicated to preventing opioid abuse. Through this funding, I was able to assist in hosting multiple medication take-back events across the state of Michigan, while also implementing the first three Take Back Events in my hometown, Clinton, MI.

In addition to my professional accomplishments, I have obtained a Bachelors of Psychology from Eastern Michigan University and I am currently working toward a Masters of Arts in School Counseling. My desire is to assure that each student feels supported and valued. I believe SRSLY provides an excellent opportunity for students to contribute in a meaningful way within a safe, supportive environment.

To say that I am excited about SRSLY and their mission is an understatement! As a new member of the SRSLY team, I am convinced that this special group of students, staff, community members and school administrators. Watching each coalition member invest of their time and resources, I am further convinced that this community is full of dedicated and passionate individuals. I look forward to working with each of you!
