The City of Clovis was named after its public spirited pioneer, Clovis M. Cole, a man who spent nearly all of his life in the vicinity. Clovis is the "Better part of Fresno" and has a wonderful school district. Located in the northeast quadrant of the Fresno-Clovis Metropolitan Area, Clovis is situated in the midst of the agriculturally rich San Joaquin Valley. Since its incorporation in 1912, Clovis has been the "Gateway to the Sierra."
Clovis? Oh... Clovis.... the better part of Fresno.

Clovis is a town in New Mexico that you don't want to go to in the summer or the winter for that matter. There are flies everywhere and you can't even put your burger down for three seconds before two flies land on it. There's crazy people and meth heads everywhere, and stupid stores called Allsups. You've got your crack whores, prostitutes and the only beautiful people you see there are at the Cannon Air Force Base; and they're beautiful because they're from other places. The natives are all ugly motherfuckers with bad attitudes. The only good place to eat is Chili's. Oh! And the roads! If you spend a whole week there you'll have to replace your tires at the end of the week.
Eg: (In Clovis) What the fuck is that smell? Oh, it's all the cow shit!

The good old place in the Central Valley that is constantly ripped on by Fresno People.. Gets extremely hot and very cold in the winter even though it hardly ever freezes, has an awesome school called Cedarwood Elementary that everyone wishes they could go to which is right on the city limit. Old town Clovis is also the shinazizazz becuase it has Clovis Music Center which stocks ESPs constantly, and it has a school that has been there for over a hundred years, CHS, basicaly Clovis is a French name for something, and we also have a rodeo that makes Old town smell for a month, which no one really goes to. The country around Clovis is pretty cool too and everyone thinks it is the coolest place ever.. ever
