Today, it’s a family affair on Up In Your Business with Kerry McCoy. Our show editor, Tom Wood, has meshed two previous interviews with then Representative Mr. Clarke Tucker, his father, Rett Tucker, and his sister Kathryn Tucker, to bring us a single, one hour, “best of” show.
The Tucker family comes from a long line of over achievers and public servants. Clarke is the great, great, great, great, grandson of Arkansas’s 18th Governor, James P. Clarke (his namesake) who took office in 1894 and later served as a US Senator until his death in 1916. Clarke was the class president of the famous Central High School and is a Harvard graduate, an award-winning lawyer, a cancer survivor, and a husband and father of two.
Clarke’s father, Rett Tucker, is a commercial real estate developer whose company, Moses Tucker Real Estate, has been influential in the revitalization of downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. Clarke’s sister, Kathryn, also a graduate of the famous Central High School, is a filmmaker. Her resume is impressive, having worked on TV shows and films such as Bones, Glee, Kill Bill, Gangs of New York, Frida, and Chicago. More recently, she helped with the start-up of the Arkansas Cinema Society, whose mission is “to build a film community in Arkansas where film lovers can watch films, share ideas, connect with each other and nurture the new and existing film talent within our state.”
Listen and learn about a family whose vision and hard work is shaping the future of Arkansas.
