Three furnishings and interiors graduates were named to the Bulldog 100 list, which honors the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni.
Making the list were Charlotte Lucas, a 2005 FACS graduate and owner of Charlotte Lucas Interior Design, whose Charlotte, N.C.-based business ranked fourth; Stephanie Bradshaw (’89), owner of The Stitchery in Rome, Ga., whose business was ranked 28th; and Ashley Johnson (’03), owner of Rumor Boutique in Macon that came in 35th.
“We are so proud of the accomplishments of these alumni,” said TMI department head Gajanan Bhat, the Georgia Athletic Association Professor of Fibers and Textiles. “It’s also good to know that our alumni are proud to be recognized as graduates of our program.”
