Two Sisters Honor Their Brother’s Death in a Drunk Driving Crash by Volunteering as MADD Victim Advocates

When 33-year-old Lester Clark was killed in a 1992 drunk driving crash, it devastated his four older sisters and their mother. Lester's sisters Pat McCollum and Penny Clark wish they’d known MADD was available to help at the time. In the year’s since, these dynamic women have turned their grief into action as volunteers and victim advocates for MADD in Kentucky and Indiana. They were honored with the 2008 Brenda Altman Heart of MADD Presidential Award, given annually to MADD volunteer victim advocates for their accomplishments in demonstrating initiative, creativity and caring to promote healing and growth for drunk driving crash victims.
