Clint Blunt is a West Virginia native from Coal City. He grew up in Greenville, South Carolina and moved to Charleston, SC where he worked for nearly a decade in HIV prevention at a local non-profit funded partially by South Carolina’s Trident United Way. After spending multiple vacations in the mountains, he and his husband of eight years, Thomas, moved to Beckley in 2021 where he set out to open his own business and make a positive difference in his hometown. In March 2023 Clint decided to combine his love of vinyl records, meeting new people and community involvement to open a vintage vinyl record store and event space on Prince Street in uptown Beckley called Vinyl Tracks. Learning to dance has been something that he has wanted to do and decided to take the opportunity to not only learn to dance, but to do it for a cause important to his heart. He appreciates that the United Way works effortlessly to improve the lives of people in communities around the world. Clint spends his free time outdoors enjoying everything West Virginia has to offer. Between walking his dogs, hiking, waterfall hunting, riding his bike and floating down the river, he makes the most of every day to the fullest.
