Mr. Bill Fralic graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1985. While at Pitt, he played football as an offensive lineman and was considered one of the best offensive linemen in college football history. He was Pittsburgh's only three-time All American, and his number 79 jersey was retired at his final home game in 1984. In 1985, he was the second overall pick in the NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons and went on to four straight Pro Bowl appearances in the late 1980's. He is also in the NFL 1980's Decades Team.
Carol Martin, a native of Albany, GA and life-long animal lover, is a former model and plastic surgery consultant. She went on to invent the first of its kind rotating makeup brush and co-found a start-up to manufacture and sell Blendsmart, from QVC to Sephora and retail outlets. Blendsmart is an interchangeable brush head made of soft, synthetic fibers that are “cruelty free”…no animal hair. “At Worth Beauty, everyone loves dogs, cats, all animals, so we want to do anything we can to support ‘our children’ and make sure they live, long, healthy and happy lives, free from harm”, she says.
Her charitable work includes AID Atlanta, Atlanta Humane Society, Hopeful Hearts Animal Rescue, Child Kind, Habitat for Humanity and Lost N Found Youth. She has rescued many dogs as pets over the years.
Carol lives in Atlanta with her husband, two time Emmy winner, Art Harris and their Jack Russells, Smokey and ‘bad girl’ Buffy, the fastest, happiest three-legged cancer surviving pup!
