Board of Directors

Clarence Wilson

President, WJCC Schools Foundation


Clarence retired from DuPont Company after 25 years, with the last 15 in upper management. His responsibilities included corporate finance and business management of worldwide operations. He holds degrees in business marketing as well as an MBA in finance. Clarence has been long active in community organizations including the Williamsburg Health Foundation and the York-James City-Williamsburg NAACP.

I believe in a strong public education system and believe the Foundation will help achieve that goal.

By funding innovative learning grants, the WJCC Schools Foundation can create opportunities inspired by imagination resulting in extraordinary experiences for our students.

It is vital that schools develop the means to offer students new and innovative ways to deal with 21st century challenges. By providing grants and awards to teachers, we will unleash their natural creativity that will encourage such innovation.
