New year, new alumni

The Berry Alumni Association welcomed a new crop of members at December’s fall commencement ceremony, and Board of Trustees Chair Karen Holley Horrell (74C) was among those on hand to help send Berry’s newest graduates out into the world.

In her remarks, Karen spoke of the gifts – both expected and unexpected – that a college experience can provide. As an example, she cited the late Steve Jobs, who never finished college but spoke passionately about the appreciation a calligraphy course inspired for the grace and beauty of fonts and how that experience contributed to the design of the many Apple devices that now populate our society.

A total of 120 graduates received bachelor’s, master’s or educational specialist degrees during the ceremony, among them Sarah Bridenbaugh (11C), an animal science major who recently interned at the Georgia Aquarium and is now in the Bahamas conducting research as part of a shark lab.
