As part of its series "MBAs to Watch in the Class of 2015" the online business school magazine Poets & Quants profiled recent Terry Full-Time MBA graduate Robert "Bobby" Woods. 

They write: "How is this for an example of perseverance and courage? Three years before starting his MBA program, Robert McMahan Woods suffered a gunshot wound in Afghanistan, causing a traumatic brain injury that cost him nearly 30 IQ points. He needed to “learn how to study, take notes and just manage how to learn again.” Undaunted, and against the advice of doctors, Woods entered a highly challenging graduate program in business. Fast forward to 2015 and Woods is now a graduate of the Terry College of Business, where he was the recipient of the Frances Wood Wilson Foundation Scholarship and the Chandler and Pat Barton MBA Scholarship. He has since founded BMWoods, an investment firm based in Athens, Georgia."

The full profile, which includes an interview with Bobby, is available online.
