Berry recently welcomed one of America’s foremost authorities on leadership as the inaugural speaker in the Cecil “Buster” Wright III (73C) Integrity in Leadership Lecture Series. Dr. Barbara Kellerman, a prolific author, speaker and Harvard University faculty member, shared her insights with the campus community during a lively address in the Berry College Chapel. Later, she sat down for a brief interview focusing on the hard times facing America’s leaders and the steps Berry is taking through its new Integrity in Leadership Center to help students meet those challenges. Fast-forward to 5:21 in the accompanying video to hear her discuss the benefits of Berry’s Gordon and Joyce Carper Integrity in Leadership Mentoring Program.

The new year will bring a new initiative within the Berry College Integrity in Leadership Center – the Cecil B. “Buster” Wright III Integrity in Leadership Lecture Series. The series honors the role that Wright, a 1973 alumnus who now serves as vice chair of the Berry College Board of Trustees, has played as a force behind the establishment of the leadership center and its Carper mentoring program, his generosity toward Berry, and his personal character.

The Feb. 11 inaugural presentation will feature remarks by Barbara Kellerman, the James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership at Harvard University. Her public lecture is scheduled for 8 p.m. in the Berry College Chapel. Admission is free. Before speaking, Kellerman will dine with students and special guests. While on campus, she also will conduct a half day of classroom visits.

“It is a wonderful privilege to have Dr. Kellerman here for the inauguration of the Cecil B. Wright III Integrity in Leadership Lecture Series,” said President Steve Briggs. “Buster Wright admires Dr. Kellerman’s writings and uses them in his mentoring work with Berry students, so it is a fitting tribute to his convictions and tenacity that she should deliver the lecture as his vision becomes a reality.”

The Integrity in Leadership Center is a priority of Berry’s LifeReady Campaign.
