Edgar Clarke

Edgar Clarke was born and raised in Flint Michigan, a place commonly known as “The Vehicle City. Graduating from Carman-Ainsworth in 2004 and being heavily focused football, he accepted a partial scholarship to Northwood University. Over the next 5 years Edgar earned his BBA in Business Marketing & Management with a concentration in Automotive. Returning home to Flint in 2015 after a 4 1/2 year stint in Las Vegas Nevada, Edgar began his mission to improve the conditions within his immediate family. Starting with the NFRC in April of 2017 Edgar  has grown in his knowledge of cooperatives. Using tools from the FCI group and aligning them with the current conditions of Flint Michigan, Edgar has seen the cooperative grown from approximately 200 members to now over 450 member-owners in just several short months.
