After earning two Bachelor of Science degrees from NC State – one in Pulp and Paper Science (1976) and the other in Chemical Engineering (1977) – Dr. Terry worked in the paper industry for a few years before deciding to study medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina. Specializing in radiation oncology, he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
After graduation, Dr. Terry spent four years in residency at Wake Forest University. After joining group practices in Asheville, N.C., and later in Greenville, S.C., he decided to start a private practice of his own, Athens Radiation Oncology, in Athens, Ga. In 2005, his practice merged with University Cancer and Blood Center to begin a multi-specialty oncology practice.
Staying Actively Involved
Dr. Terry is a member of the medical staff at Athens Regional Medical Center and St. Mary’s Healthcare System, and a clinical assistant professor in the departments of medicine and radiation oncology at the University of Georgia’s Medical College. In addition to being a lifetime member of the Alumni Association and long-time Wolfpack Club member, Dr. Terry serves on the board of directors of the NC State Natural Resources Foundation.
…Not just Thinking but Doing
In 2015, Dr. Terry and his wife, Dale, established of the Student Enrichment and Assistance Fund within the College of Natural Resources. The fund supports students who may not otherwise be able to pursue enrichment experiences such as study abroad, research initiatives and unpaid internships.
“Ron has made a significant impact on our college,”Dean Mary C. Watzin said. “Not only is he a role model for our students, but his vision is providing an opportunity for the young people in our college to get out of the classroom and have experiences that will shape them for years to come – to not just think but to DO. We are so lucky to have him as a part of our College of Natural Resources family.”
