The celebrations just keep on coming for all of us Clemson Tigers… Congratulations to one of our own: MPS architect Michael Allen! This past Saturday night at the annual Clemson FootballBanquet, Michael received one of Clemson University’s highest awards – the 2019 Brian Dawkins Lifetime Achievement Award. Each year, this honor is given to a former player for their impact on the field and in the community after graduation. For both his playmaking abilities on the field (1995-1998), and his leadership and community service since, we think Michael was a great selection for this honor. He founded LeadRs, a nonprofit focused on developing leadership and reading skills in young African-American men, he serves on numerous boards and committees likeUnited Way of Greenville County,Upstate Forever, Greenville Technical College Foundation and the City of Greenville Planning Commission, and he continues to make a difference in the lives of those around him every day.
