Larry Abernathy

A Nod To Our Namesake

A Nod To Our Namesake Larry Abernathy (1947-2012) was the embodiment of Clemson. The city’s longtime mayor was also an adjunct professor whose passion and pride for the university knew no bounds. A gentleman, family man and public servant, Abernathy was first elected to the Clemson City Council while still a student at the university. Among his innumerable accomplishments were the creation of the state's first energy-efficient transit center and one of its first climate action plans. An avid outdoorsman, he once said: “I am driven to environmentally friendly initiatives because I have three grandsons. And I want them to have a world that is as beautiful, as enjoyable, and as unharmed as it can possibly be.”
