These are some of the emails obtained from Eastern Washington University chronicling the employment termination of Kelly Clark, a 16-year seasonal worker for the Archaeological and Historical Services department at EWU. Clark lost his job in early September after he handed a beer to a panhandler in the area of Trosper Road and Littlerock Road in Tumwater. Clark lost his job on Sept. 15, 2016, although the photo shows an email with a typo about his termination date.
