Each week, we feature an Alum of the Day, where alumni can share about their career, company, activities they enjoy in their downtime, favorite Georgia memories, and how they choose to give back to their community. In addition to highlighting successful alumni, the goal of the Alum of the Day series is to show current Terry students the types of career opportunities that exist and give them great contacts in their industry. Students are encouraged to reach out to each Alum of the Day to connect.
