In 2013, Beth Collins Earnst (93C) won well-deserved acclaim as the winner of Berry’s Outstanding Young Alumni Award. Now she can add another distinction to her resume – Alumni Accent trivia champion! She recalled correctly that it was Cecily Crow (94C) who bore the Olympic flame through the Berry campus on its way to Atlanta in 1996. We’ll include more on Berry’s Olympic legacy in a future issue. In the meantime, scroll to the blog footer for this month’s question about a famous Berry landmark. (HINT: Many of you have celebrated a major life event inside its walls.)

A decorated diplomat, two longtime friends with a shared passion for helping children, a self-described “serial entrepreneur,” and a young alumna who has found success in the corporate world recently joined the ranks of Berry’s Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. They were honored at Alumni Weekend 2013. This year’s inductees – Angela R. Dickey (75A, 79C), F. Mack Gay (59C), the late Walter O. Maine (59C), Sheryle J. Bolton (68c) and Beth Collins Earnst (93C) – span four decades of Berry history.

Angela, recipient of the Distinguished Achievement Award, was recognized for her globe-spanning career with the U.S. Department of State. Mack and Walter shared the Distinguished Service Award for their work with Florida foster children (chronicled in Berry magazine). Sheryle, recently appointed CEO of Sally Ride Science and a member of the Berry College Board of Trustees, was presented with the Entrepreneurial Spirit Award. And Beth, a communications manager for BASF Corp., and new member of the Berry College Board of Visitors, was named Outstanding Young Alumna.

A number of other alumni and friends were also honored during Alumni Weekend, including the husband and wife tandem of J. Ray and Marilyn Scott (65C) Allen, recipients of the 2013 High School/Academy Outstanding Faculty/Staff Awards. Alumni in attendance also had a presentation for Berry – a combined gift of $3 million from the reunion classes.
