A Personal Glimpse

Most people don’t know that Clay grew up on a chicken farm in White County and started out as a poultry science major in college, before changing to pharmacy …  then high school science teacher … then high school math teacher … and finally settling on accounting. Highlights of his life are his Christian faith and his wife Lindsey. He enjoys seeing new parts of the world and cheering on the Atlanta Braves. And when time allows, he enjoys hitting the links for a round of golf.
