The Alumni Association has selected Charlotte Underwood Cobb of Marietta, Ga., to receive the 2017 Frank Kellers III Volunteer of the Year award. The award recognizes an alumnus for outstanding volunteerism and service to the University.
The Alumni Association chose Cobb for her role in reviving, growing and re-energizing the Atlanta Clemson Club. Her leadership in increasing the number of events and locations around the Metro Atlanta area has improved accessibility and offered more opportunities to a broader range of alumni.
Cobb has also volunteered extensively for nonprofit organizations in the Atlanta community such as the Special Olympics of Georgia, Toys for Tots, the Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research and Ronald McDonald House Charities (in both Atlanta and Australia).
As a global events manager for The Coca-Cola Co., Cobb had various roles in planning and executing the company’s global hospitality program for five Olympic games, three FIFA World Cups and two Rugby World Cups. She now owns and runs her own company, 7C’s Event Management.
