Stuart Parker 05′ in Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia, with the Oromo region hillside in the background.
I am a December 1981 graduate, and had the pleasure of attending Clemson’s 1981 National Championship in the Orange Bowl. While my thoughts were with Clemson this year during the 2015 championship, I was not able to watch game, because I was in a remote region of Ethiopia on a short term mission trip. Immediately upon returning to South Carolina, I watched a recorded version of the game. Although the final score ended in a win for Alabama, I was very proud of our Tigers’ performance on the field. I am even more impressed with our Tigers’ performance off the field. Coach Swinney’s testimonies, Deshaun Watson’s Habitat for Humanity contributions, and Tony Elliott’s success story are all positive representations for Clemson. Go Tigers!!!!!!
