Berry Bell RingersBerry student-athletes know what the Christmas spirit is all about. For 12 days in December, representatives of the college’s 20 varsity teams took time out of their busy schedules to volunteer as bell-ringers for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. This marked the second consecutive year that Berry student-athletes have volunteered in this way. In that time, they have collected more than $13,000 – second among all groups serving in the Rome area – while volunteering hundreds of hours in support of the campaign.

The student-athletes’ involvement in the Red Kettle campaign resulted in one of two service awards presented to Berry by the National Association of Division III Athletic Administrators. Also honored was the softball team’s 2014 “Pink Day” effort, which raised more than $5,000 to fight cancer.
