General Wesley Clark is not just one of the Honored Keynote Speakers scheduled to appear at the High School Presidential Inaugural Conference in January, along with former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. General Clark is a retired four-star general of the United States, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe for NATO, a 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, and now is a reality television show host. NBC recently announced that General Clark would host a new reality show called, Stars Earn Stripes, which will feature nine celebrities competing in challenging and complicated “missions”, inspired by real military exercises.
General Clark commented on his new role as the show’s host by saying, “I am thrilled to join Stars Earn Stripes as host and look forward to watching the celebrity cast members test themselves as they step up to take on these tough challenges. This new series pays tribute to members of our dedicated armed forces and civil law enforcement and I know that the winnings, which will be donated to first-responder charity and veterans groups, will make a difference and send an important message.”
