In 1946, the Crimson & Gold yearbook honored vice-principal Olive E. Clark for her 28 years dedicated to working at Colton High School.

Other than being a passionate and well-loved vice principal, she would also have fun. She made memories with her students as a makeup artist and would give them fun new looks.

Overall, Clark was remembered to be lovingly devoted to her job and the students on campus. And she enjoyed brightening up her student’s day and making Colton High School a better place.
