A year after torrential rain forced some of Berry’s most beloved traditions to be moved indoors or cancelled all together, Mountain Day returned in all of its glory in 2016. Sunny skies and beautiful fall weather were the order of the day as 6,000 students, alumni, parents, faculty/staff members and friends turned out for the annual celebration of Martha Berry’s birthday. While students enjoyed the revelry of Friday afternoon’s Mountain Day Olympics and Saturday night’s Marthapalooza carnival, alumni swapped stories and renewed friendships during the annual picnic and other events, among them a special “milestone” reception at Oak Hill for classes marking their 10th, 25th and 40th reunion years.

Other highlights included convocation remarks by Michael Maney (98C), senior director of communications for Target, and the birth of a new giving tradition rooted in a shared Mountain Day experience, Pennies for Martha. Click the links for coverage of each.

With a resume that includes career stops at Target, Sony Pictures Television and The Walt Disney Company, it’s safe to say Michael Maney (98C) has strong “street cred” in the world of corporate communications. Few who know him through his current role as senior director of communications for Target would guess that this year’s Mountain Day Convocation speaker got his start as a student working in the Berry Archives and producing video packages for the communication department. Maney reflected on these experiences and how they shaped his future path while on campus for Mountain Day.
