Meet the Northside Chapter Outfitter: Mark Knight

Mark Knight grew up in a Christian home as a preachers kid, where his father started new Christian Churches so he moved about every two years. He graduated from Rogers Arkansas in 1973 where he started working in construction for several years which led to working for the Missouri Department of Transportation, where he retired early in 2010. Mark has been married to Vicki for 10 years and together they have a son, two daughters, seven grandchildren and one great grandson. Mark currently has a small lawn mowing business which provides him the opportunity to pursue his love for the outdoors. Mark met CTO Missouri State Director, Kirk Bouse at his church and began volunteering for CTO in 2015. Then in January of 2018 Mark felt the call to become the new CTO Missouri Northside Chapter leader.
