Abby Eubanks has been one of the busiest students on campus in recent days, and with good reason. She serves as the director of the First Friday Parade, which is set for Aug. 31 at 6 p.m. Eubanks has been a member of Central Spirit since her freshman year and has been attending the parade since she was 3 years old.

Eubanks is a senior PRTM major from Fort Mill, South Carolina who hopes to utilize the Travel and Tourism concentration to parlay a job in destination marketing. She has also been active on campus with Pi Beta Phi sorority and Clemson Miracle, a fundraising student organization responsible for the largest university contribution to GHS Children’s Hospital this past spring.

In this week’s podcast, Eubanks discusses her Clemson Experience and sets the table for the First Friday Parade, which has a new route this year following recent construction to Highway 93.
