United Way Welcomes Chris Clute to the Board
Lt. Chris Clute
Assistant Commander, Michigan State Police, Lakeview Post
My family on my mother’s side has been in Montcalm County for generations. My father’s family as well, to a lesser extent. I graduated from Central Montcalm High School. After high school I enlisted in the US Army and served 4 years active duty and 2 years with the National Guard. I hold a BA in Public Administration from Western Michigan University. I have been with the state police for over 20 years. During my career I worked as a road trooper, SWAT team member, fugitive team member and was on staff at our academy for three years. Since coming to the Lakeview Post, I have served a squad sergeant, detective sergeant and am currently a lieutenant. I’m now the assistant post commander at the Lakeview Post, which covers Gratiot, Ionia and Montcalm Counties. I live with wife and children in northern Ionia County. My wife is in a similar field and works in Montcalm County as a Children’s Protective Services Supervisor.
