Meet The Board

RANDOLPH M. CLARK

Founder / President

Randolph Clark founded the Key City Foundation with the vision and drive to improve upon our youth sports organizations. He saw increasing prices of youth sports as a major contributor to the lack of youth involvement in athletics now. So, Randy focused on developing the organization with experience, integrity, and a passion to give back.

 

When he is not overseeing the day-to-day operations of the foundation; he enjoys coaching Walkersville High School Boys' Lacrosse and Wrestling, hiking with his family (Amanda and Balto), pursuing business ventures, exercising, or studying for self-development.

Feel free to reach out to Coach Clark directly with any questions regarding our Foundation at randolph.clark@keycityfoundation.com. Please CC the following email as well info@keycityfoundation.com.

THERESA CHURCH

Director of Advancement & Community Relations

Theresa Church joined the Key City Foundation because of her genuine love of lacrosse, her community and great local non-profits. She is excited for the opportunity to help us tie them together with the goal of creating a rewarding experience for all involved.


With over 15 years of being a sports parent (rec/club/college), she understands the challenges and rewards for players and parents on many levels. Professionally, she brings over 23 years of creative marketing & business development, strategic planning - as well as countless years of community service.

If you can’t find Theresa, her husband and sons on a lacrosse field (or some other sporting event), you might try the water. They have a great love for the outdoors - kayaking, boating, exploring and spoiling their sweet recue lab/hound, Stella. Painting, cooking and “up for anything adventures” also make her list of enjoying daily life.

CHRIS STACK

Director of Youth Soccer

Chris Stack joined the Key City Foundation because the mission and vision are very much aligned with Coach Stack's student-athlete development philosophy and his eagerness to give back to our youth. Coach Stack has been involved in youth soccer for over 20 years and believes mastering the fundamentals of the game are key to future success.  His coaching philosophy is based on teaching the proper techniques and mechanics at an early age, to allow players to be fundamentally sound as they continue their development technically, tactically, and physically.   Coach Stack uses a player-centered approach to coaching and strives to develop his players, on and off the field.  

 

Chris spent 10 years coaching at the collegiate level at both McDaniel College and his Alma Mater Mount St. Mary's where he was the Women's Assistant soccer Coach, as well as the Director of Student-Athlete Academic Support & Development.  His work in intercollegiate athletics aided him in the founding of Guiding Future Stars, a student-athlete development company that is committed to transforming the next generation into excellent students, great athletes, and extraordinary people.

 

When Coach Stack is not watching, playing, or coaching soccer, which is rare, he enjoys spending time with his family Allison and Linc. 

Feel free to reach out to Coach Stack directly with any questions regarding our Foundation's upcoming Youth Soccer Program at Chris.stack@keycityfoundation.com.
