Ryan

Congratulations to our High School Graduate, Ryan Clark, from your POPC family!

Ryan began his early years playing baseball, soccer, basketball, and Boy Scouts, then he settled into Karate, earning his Black Belt with determination and strength. He has been musical even in his early years first by learning the trumpet, singing in plays, and then he found the drums and hasn’t put them down since.

He started learning drums at POPC and through the help of his many musical mentors, Nathaniel Gittner, Matt Miller, the POPC Praise Band team, was able to take part in competitions and multiple public performances. Ryan played quads in the Spruce Creek Marching Band and competed and played in Savannah, Tampa, Orlando, and Europe.

Ryan will be attending the University of South Florida in Tampa and plans to study Engineering. Yes, and hoping to fit drumming in as well! He will be taking a little piece of POPC with him to help guide him along his journey. Look for him to sit in on the drums on a weekend or special music event during the year!
