Jim Wood Speaker Series
The Jim Wood Speaker Series is named after James “Jim” Wood, Jr. who financially supported the efforts of the College of Business to seek and obtain guest lecturers who are some of Georgia’s most celebrated business personalities. The College of Business sees the series as a means to forge bonds between Georgia’s business leaders and Clayton State students, while ensuring students gain insights into current business trends and corporate strategies.
The Wood family has a long history with Clayton State University. Jim Wood was president of Jim Wood Associates, former owner/publisher of the Clayton News-Daily, and the only original member to serve on the Board of Trustees of Clayton State University Foundation until his passing in 2018.
