Why or Why Not with the Watsons
We invite all Terry College alumni to join us for a special virtual event to hear
from two prominent and influential Terry graduates: author, former Georgia Bulldogs
tight end and Super Bowl winner Benjamin Watson (BBA ’03), as well as speaker, author
and wife to Ben, Kirsten Watson (BBA ’03).
During this virtual conversation, the couple will discuss their journey together,
America's struggle with race relations, and the path to becoming good citizens and
ambassadors for UGA and the Terry College.
