Led by Clayton State University Assistant Vice President of Outreach Dr. Kevin Demmitt, the Clayton State – Fayette instructional site once again took part in Peachtree City’s annual Fourth of July Parade.
For the second year, Clayton State – Fayette showed its support for its “hometown” by appearing in the annual parade, this year featuring a float with a jazz trio made up of current Clayton State – Fayette student Drake Kennedy and former students Matt Lyons and James Hunter. Also participating in front of the parade’s 12,000 spectators  were: Demmitt, student Danielle Chapman; Rodger Chapman (a Clayton State employee and Danielle Chapman’s father); Dr. Michael Deis (Professor of Business and director of the University’s MBA program); Dr. Bill Hagans (Clayton State – Fayette advisor); and student Krista Hartsell. All except Deis (Newnan) are Peachtree City residents.
A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
