Matt McClure purchased a Home Instead Senior Care franchise, because he believes it’s important for seniors and their families to have options when it comes to their long-term care. A former teacher and high school principal, Matt currently serves as the superintendent of schools for the Cross County School District in Cherry Valley, Arkansas. He is looking forward to working with the older generation – helping seniors in Pulaski, Lonoke and White Counties live safely and independently for as long as possible. In his spare time, Matt enjoys spending time with his family, golfing and water sports.
