Mike Clutter, dean of the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, has been inducted into the Georgia Foresters Hall of Fame by the Georgia Division of the Southeastern Society of American Foresters.
Clutter, who received his Ph.D. in 1993 and his master’s degree in 1983 from Warnell, was inducted into the hall of fame at a ceremony Sept. 8 at St. Simon’s Island, along with another Warnell alumnus, the late Hank Haynes. A third inductee, Kate Robie, became the first woman to join the hall of fame. Robie serves on the Warnell School’s external advisory board.
Clutter has had a long career in the private forestry industry, becoming the Hargreaves Distinguished Professor of Forest Finance at Warnell in 2001. He still serves on the boards of directors for several forestry corporations around the state.
“I am honored by this recognition and am particularly pleased to be inducted with Professor Haynes and Kate Robie,” Clutter said. “Hank Haynes was a long time family friend and mentor for me and many other students here at Warnell-to be in a group with him is truly an honor. I have also had the privilege to work with Kate for many years during my time in the private sector; she has made great contributions to forestry here in Georgia and around the world.”
