ABC Service Day

Student-athletes gather in Ford Gymnasium prior to their semi-annual community service day.

An army of student-athletes more than 300 strong flooded into the local community Nov. 4 for a day of service sponsored by Athletes Bettering the Community, the service arm of Berry’s intercollegiate athletic department. Student-athletes served at 20 different locations throughout Rome and Floyd County, including schools, retirement centers, shelters and thrift stores. Student-athletes have also contributed their time and energy  in support of other causes during the past year. Beneficiaries include cancer patients and their families as well as a U.S. military unit in Afghanistan. More.

Complementing their dedication to service is a continuing commitment to excellence in the classroom. Recently, six members of the 2010-11 softball team were recognized as All-America Scholar Athletes by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association, while the team as a whole was honored as an All-Academic team.
