Hundreds of alumni and friends made the pilgrimage home to Berry for Alumni Weekend and Work Week.

This year’s Alumni Weekend celebration featured reunions for the college, high school and academy classes of 1952, 1957, 1962 and 1967. Highlights included Golden Guard induction for 1967 alumni and special recognition for reunion classes achieving notable success in participation and giving. The class of 1967C earned two such distinctions, the Viking Cup and Martha Cup, for giving participation and greatest percentage increase in annual giving, respectively. The Class of 1962H claimed the Ford Cup for total gifts, while the class of 1967A won the Reunion Cup for percentage in attendance. Class reunion photos.

Individual recognition went to recent Berry retiree Rose Nix, the institution’s newest honorary alumna; former Alumni Association President Dr. Randy Green (37H, 41C), the 2017 recipient of the Virginia R. Webb Exceptional Service Award; and Al (61c) and Becky (61C) Christopher, winners of the Alumni Association’s President’s Award.

Once the reunion dinners wound down and the various awards had been presented, the focus turned to one of Berry’s most unique traditions, Alumni Work Week, which this year featured approximately 175 participants and 17 different work crews. More coverage.
