THIS YEAR’S HONOREES have been recognized by their peers for impressive achievements in their professional lives. They have contributed to their communities both publicly and privately, serving on boards and volunteering without expectation of reward or recognition. They have stayed connected with Clemson, giving back in time, talent and resources to benefit current and future students. These five honorees reflect the characteristics that define Clemson. They are visionary, bold, competitive, determined and proud. They value family, tradition and loyalty. And they love orange.
Each of us has our own Clemson moments — when we realized that Clemson was where we wanted to spend the next four years; when a friend or mentor offered an insight that changed our direction; when we realized that our education had prepared us well for a professional position; or when we stood with a group of fellow Tigers and realized that they really are family.
This year’s honorees share with us their most significant Clemson moments.
