My friend, John Allison Clark, is a 33rd degree Mason, the highest honor given to a Scottish Rite Mason. A few weeks ago, Clark received a surprise invitation to attend and to be a candidate for the ancient and accepted Scottish Rite 33rd degree in Masonry. The long weekend ceremony was held in Corinth.
The coronation ceremony was by invitation only - a distinctive honor for Clark. Mrs. Clark was with John for the once-in-a-lifetime celebration. A time was set aside for ladies, who accompanied their husbands, for this august occasion.
