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.

The pioneering explorer lost her fight with pancreatic cancer earlier this summer, but the science education company she founded – Sally Ride Science – lives on under the leadership of new CEO Sheryle Bolton (68c), a six-year member of the Berry College Board of Trustees. Bolton’s extensive business experience and passion for science and technology helped earn her the opportunity to follow in the famous astronaut’s footsteps.

“We are thrilled to have Sheryle join our team at Sally Ride Science and lead us forward,” said Tam O’Shaughnessy, co-founder, board director and COO of Sally Ride Science. “Sheryle brings a wealth of talent, brainpower and experience.”
