Meet the Rising 25 Class of 2018: Clark Lammert

1. Tell Us About Yourself and Your Current Role

I grew up in San Antonio, TX before heading to Lubbock for college. I attended Texas Tech University for my undergraduate and graduate degrees while playing four years on the Texas Tech men’s basketball team. Upon graduating, I moved to Washington, D.C. for a semester and served as a Congressional intern in Senator John Cornyn’s office. After serving in several positions within the Red Raider Club, I assumed the role of Associate Director – Leadership Giving in the fall of 2017. The Red Raider Club is the fundraising arm of Texas Tech Athletics. I currently manage all sales and operations for premium seating for our three major sports, football, basketball and baseball. I also assist in fundraising for various athletic facility projects across campus.

2. Where do you see yourself in 15 years/dream job?

In 15 years, I hope I still have the opportunity to do what I love. Raising money for student-athlete scholarships, facilities and other resources is something I am really passionate about. I’m a byproduct of philanthropic support and enjoy providing an avenue for alumni to support athletics programs. As far as title and institution, I feel that success shouldn’t be measured by status and rank. If you’re happy and feel like you’re making an impact, that should define your success.

3. Who is your mentor at this point?

My first mentor was Chloe Barnes. Chloe was the director of student-athlete development when I was a student-athlete at Texas Tech. She was extremely involved with student-athletes and went above and beyond to help them realize their goals and pursue them.

Our Director of Athletics, Kirby Hocutt, is someone I look up to in our industry. He has set a standard of excellence at Texas Tech with his leadership and his willingness to put our student-athletes needs first.

I also consider my parents, Dean and Christi Lammert my role models. They have given me every opportunity to be successful. My brothers, Chris and Connor, and my girlfriend Shannon inspire me to continue to push forward and be the best version of myself I can be.

4. What’s one thing you’ve learned early in your career that you didn’t know until you started working in the industry?

As a student-athlete at Texas Tech, I was not aware of the countless hours athletic department employees put in to give student-athletes the best possible experience. I used to think that everything just magically appeared and never realized how many people devote their life’s work to the betterment of young men and women.

5. What does winning the Rising 25 Award mean to you?

It is an incredible honor to be named to this group of bright, driven young professionals. This accolade is a direct reflection of the talented, ambitious people I work with on a daily basis. I’m proud to accept this award of behalf of Texas Tech Athletics and the Red Raider Club.
