Rapping Dad, Derek Clark, with Juvenile Judge Al Davies at the Capitol Music Hall.

Guest speaker “Rapping Dad” Derek Clark will spoke to all Belmont County high school students on November 2, 2023! This exciting event was sponsored by the Belmont County Schools Staying Clean Club through the support of the Classy Chassis Car Club car show fundraising efforts. Schools bused students to the Capitol Music Hall in Wheeling, West Virginia for this event.

Rapping Dad Derek Clark’s life is one of resilience and redemption. As a child, he suffered unthinkable child abuse, abandonment, and emotional distress before being abandoned at a psychiatric hospital at the age of five. His thirteen years in the San Francisco Bay Area foster care system reflected an early life of aggression, emotional distress, overwhelming anxiety, humiliation, and being wrongfully diagnosed.

Eventually, with the help of loving foster parents and a fantastic social worker, he defied the artificial limitation imposed upon him. Derek knows first-hand how to cope with adversity and overcome hardship. His past has never held him back from accomplishing what he set his heart and mind to.

Derek is an author, and inspiring motivational speaker and has recently become a viral video sensation for his “Rapping Dad” videos which have had over 250 million social media views. He’s also been featured on The Steve Harvey TV Show, FOX, and many other TV shows around the world.

He is the author of seven books including “I Will Never Give Up’, “Disable the Label” and “Never Limit Your Life”.

His true-life underdog life story of overcoming brutal adversity and personal triumphs has inspired organizations with his message of hope, determination, and unwavering perseverance. He has turned his situation from a victim to a victor, equipping him with the wisdom and the will to never give up.
