Mark Green was born in 1953, while his parents lived in Magazine. When he was four years old, they moved to Booneville, and except for about eight years, he has lived there ever since.
He graduated from BHS in 1971 and got his degree in music from Arkansas Tech in 1976. He retired from International Paper in 2017.
Mark's journalistic career began with his junior year in high school when he was asked by the Booneville Democrat to write the stories for the football games. In the intervening decades, he has been involved regularly in writing in some form or another.
Mark and his wife of 48 years, the former Pam Adams, live just outside of Booneville, where they raised their six children and where they regularly entertain their 18 grandchildren. Among his activities in his retirement has been the announcing for the Magazine Rattler basketball games since the construction of Diamondback Arena.
One of my duties as the announcer for the Magazine Rattler basketball games is to try to make sure that I pronounce the names of the players correctly.
I can remember vividly Pam rocking the children when they were fretful or sick, when I knew that she herself had not had any appreciable amount of sleep in days.
