I am Sharon Brown Lewis, the Assistant Town Clerk for the Town of Clinton. I was hired part-time as a student worker in 1981 and I became a full-time employee with the town in 1983. I had the opportunity to seek employment at a couple of other places but I enjoy my job most days. I have become something like a permanent fixture with the town. I am the proud mother of three children and the grandmother of two. One of my favorite scriptures in the Bible is: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
