On April 16, 2007, the world learned the name of Ryan Clark for one heroic, selfless act on the campus of Virginia Tech. With this award, Ryan’s hometown community honors all the selfless acts that were part of Ryan’s character. The 2002 Lakeside High School graduate was a campus leader and volunteered for many organizations. He sorted items at Golden Harvest Food Bank, served food to the homeless at the Master’s Table, tutored children at Communities in Schools of Augusta/Richmond County, volunteered with Virginia Tech YMCA during Thanksgiving 2004 to help clean up after Hurricane Katrina through Circle K, a Kiwanis organization, and served as a counselor at Camp Big Heart, a camp for youth with special needs. Volunteering his time to help people was a core value of the young man known as "Stack" by fellow members of the Virginia Tech marching band.
