Athens, Ga. – University of Georgia President Michael F. Adams made the following statement today on the passing of Clementi Holder.
“H. Randolph and Clementi Holder were two of the first people we met upon arrival in Athens 16 years ago. They have been dear friends and great supporters of the university and the community in every way. Clementi, with that wonderful, big laugh, loved the Girl Scouts, the Performing Arts Center, the Georgia Museum of Art and many other causes both on and off campus. This community and the Bulldog nation are much poorer today because of her passing. Mary and I feel a great sense of loss and extend our deepest sympathies to Clementi’s current husband, Bob Saveland, and to the entire Holder family.”
