Martha BerryFOX 5 Atlanta kicked off its celebration of Women’s History Month by profiling a pioneer in education near and dear to the hearts of Berry alumni  – Martha Berry herself! Providing context for the audience were Tim Brown, director of Oak Hill and The Martha Berry Museum, and Marti Berry Walstad, Martha’s great niece and a current member of the Berry College Board of Trustees. Many will recognize the FOX 5 reporter as former Atlanta Brave Ron Gant, now a co-host for Good Day Atlanta. Click the image to view his report.

It’s hard to imagine a better setting for a family photo than the top of Lavender Mountain, especially when the family happens to trace its roots to Berry itself. This special group – more than 100 strong – recently returned “home” for the second Berry Family Reunion. Some came from as far away as Hawaii and France for the family’s first official gathering since the inaugural event in 2008. Organizers included Marti Berry Walstad, a college trustee and Martha Berry’s great-niece, and Nancy Benson Berry, wife of Trustee Randy Berry, Martha’s great-nephew.
