Timothy Campbell (66), SecurAmerica, LLC, BSAE 1984, MS 1985; and Tracy Stanley (87), Vidalia Valley, BSAE 1992. “With so many jobs in both traditional and nontraditional agriculture, it is no wonder that so many CAES graduates are recognized in the Bulldog 100,” said J. Scott Angle, dean and director of the college. “We are pleased that our graduates are producing new jobs for the great state of Georgia.”More than 700 nominations were submitted for this year’s program. The 2013 honorees include companies ranging in all sizes and services from an array of fields including the airline, healthcare and insurance industries.Some of CAES’ Bulldog 100 honorees run traditional agriculture companies like White Oak Pastures, R.L. Cunningham and Sons and Vidalia Valley. White Oak Pastures raises grass-fed beef and free-range poultry. The heart of Cunningham and Sons is shelling seed peanuts, a service they have provided Georgia farmers since 1942. Vidalia Valley grows its own Vidalia onions to process into relishes, dressings, salsas and sauces. Other honored CAES alumni operate companies that are not directly related to agriculture like Tim Campbell, CEO of SecurAmerica, an Atlanta-based guard services provider. Jack Hartley runs a Home Instead Senior Care franchise in Valdosta, Ga. “I don’t use my ag degree directly in my business, but I do use the discipline of my Georgia degree,” Hartley said. “The ag econ department developed my nature to complete and finish things and to be the best.”Ron Holt earned a biological sciences degree from CAES and began his career as a chemical technician, and later laboratory director, for Micromeritics in Norcross, Ga. Holt had a “tremendous” desire to open his own business and in 2003, he did just that.Holt bought Two Maids and a Mop, a cleaning business in Pensacola, Fla. Today, he owns 11 locations and will open two more in just a few weeks. “My degree gave me the foundation I needed to get a good job so I could earn the money I needed to purchase that first business. I credit my education for my success, indirectly.”Brothers Rory and Adam Singer both graduated from CAES with biological science degrees. Together they own and operate Athens Fitness and Mixed Martial Arts in Athens, Ga.During the day, Adam Singer uses his degree in agriculture working for Merial Pharmaceuticals in Athens. At night, he helps his brother run the gym and teaches martial arts. “My brother and I have been doing martial arts for most of our lives,” said Rory Singer. “We ran a rec sports program in martial arts at UGA while we were students.”Rory Singer started training to compete in 1999 and turned professional in 2001. He also appeared on season 3 of the reality show Ultimate Fighter. When Rory’s professional career began to “dwindle down,” the brothers decided to open their own business and Athens Fitness and MMA was born.“I’m still a giant fan of science and medicine. When I was a UGA student, I looked into moving into prostheses and orthopedic replacements but I realized I was too old to go into medicine. So, I took a different route – watching people’s lives change through martial arts,” Rory Singer said. “My brother loves what he does and he loves science. So now the job he has working in the lab is fulfilling and he still has the love of martial arts and competing and training.”In addition to being named to the 2012 Bulldog 100 list, the Singers were listed among the top coaches in the nation by USC Magazine.For a complete list of the 2012 Bulldog 100 honorees, go to www.alumni.uga.edu/alumni/index.php/site/bulldog100.last_img read more

The Tottenham boss was sticking to guidelines and keeping his distance when a topless Dele, who turns 24 today, stepped outside his house in North London. Mourinho stuck to the guidelines today after being pictured apparently taking a training session with three Spurs players in a park earlier this week Mourinho, 57, risked a telling off from police earlier this week after he appeared to flout coronavirus guidelines by taking a training session in a London park. Pictures appeared to show the Spurs boss doing drills with club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele on Hadley Common. Youngster Ryan Sessegnon and central defender Davinson Sanchez were also spotted jogging side by side. Mourinho has since apologised for his actions and looked to have learned his lesson while keeping a safe distance away from Alli – who himself went on a two-night binge with the season suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak – when out and about today. Our photos show Mourinho – who wore a coronavirus mask for his sunshine stroll – keeping the other side of the road while talking to his player. The Special One, who was out at the same time as goalkeeper coach Nuno Santos and Spurs tactical analyst Ricardo Formosinho, even stopped to take a photo on his allotted period of exercise during the global pandemic. Dele – who lives about five minutes away from Mourinho – took to Instagram after his chance encounter with his boss to show how he is coping with being stuck indoors.
