Ginny Clark, executive director of the Sands Family Foundation, will be the commencement speaker for Finger Lakes Community College on May 18.
Clark recently retired as vice president for Constellation Brands, the global beverage company started by the Sands family. She had a 20-year career with Constellation, serving as vice president of corporate communications and of external affairs during her time there.
Working for Constellation, Clark spearheaded some of its philanthropic efforts, such as the loan of company corporate jets to bring workers from InterVol, a humanitarian organization, to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, and a $5 million capital campaign for Mercy Flight Central. She also oversaw construction of the NY Kitchen, and the Constellation Brands Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center on the FLCC campus. She remains the president of the boards of directors for both those organizations.
Clark is a community college graduate, having earned an associate’s degree from Herkimer County Community College. She also holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Rochester Institute of Technology.
