Eight FACS graduates have been named to the 2014 Bulldog 100, a list compiled by the UGA Alumni Association to recognize the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni.
Companies are ranked by a three-year compounded annual growth rate of revenues and are required to meet specific criteria.
FACS grads named to the list are Alva Youngner (BSHE ’66, M. Ed. '73, Ed. S. '75, Ed. D. '77) of Association Management in St. Simons Island; Sarah Kathryn Smith (BSFCS ’98) of Eight at Eight in Atlanta; Anna Brookshire Johnson (BSFCS ’02) and Jeffrey Johnson (AB '00, BSFCS ’03) of Johnson Benefits Group in Duluth; Ashley S. Johnson (BSFCS ’03) of Rumor Boutique in Macon; Kelly Dean (BSHE ’89, MS '91) of SDA CPA Group, P.C. in Dunwoody; Jody Rosen Atkins (BSHE ’89, MS '91) of The Association Source in Boca Raton, Fla.; and Gene Rice (BSFCS ’05) of Vantage Realty Partners in Atlanta.
“We are so proud of these FACS graduates who have distinguished themselves with their ingenuity and passion,” FACS dean Linda Kirk Fox said. “We celebrate their accomplishments along with the entire FACS family and look forward to their continued success.”
The 2014 Bulldog 100 rankings will be unveiled at the celebration on Jan. 25, 2014, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Fran Tarkenton, UGA grad and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, is the event’s keynote speaker.
