After graduating from North Moore High School, Portia Clark worked in the private sector before coming to Sandhills 33 years ago. She and her husband, Terry, had one of the first weddings in the Sandhills Horticultural Gardens.

“Sandhills has always been more than just a job I get up and go to each day,” Portia remarked. “We have a family atmosphere here; everyone works together so well.”

And Portia knows a lot about family. She was raised on a farm in Biscoe with two brothers and two sisters and has three children and five granddaughters.

“I come from a very musical family,” she said, “so good music is a must at our home. We all sing or play an instrument. We also enjoy sports and live theatre. Some of our grandchildren are now old enough to grace us with their piano talents, and we enjoy watching them play sports.”

Portia manages accounts payables for Sandhills, processing invoices and vouchers, printing checks, and mailing payments. Among these and various other tasks, she works with co-workers and trustees concerning travel advances and reimbursements.
