Clayton State – Fayette Rides Through Peachtree City on July 4

If you saw a cap-and-gown-decorated golf cart in the recent Peachtree City Fourth of July Parade, you might not have needed the orange signs to know that Fayette County’s own higher education site, Clayton State University – Fayette, had gotten into the spirit of the Fourth.

Led by Clayton State – Fayette Director and Assistant Vice President of Academic Outreach Dr. Kevin Demmitt, nine individuals and two golf carts from Clayton State took part in the annual parade in front of 12,000 people. Riding and walking along with the two decorated two golf carts (one with the cap and gown, the other with a patriotic theme) and giving out Clayton State magnetic dry erase boards were Clayton State faculty, staff and students.

Those walking in the parade were, in addition to Demmitt: student worker Danielle Chapman and her family; administrative assistant Kathy Stevens; academic advisor Bill Hagans and his family; Dr. Michael Deis, director of the Clayton State MBA program, Assistant Professor of History Dr. Randall Gooden, MBA student Monika Klingler; Clayton State student Michaela Dolhancyk and student worker Krista Hartsell. All except Deis (who’s from nearby Newnan) are also residents of Fayette County.

A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
