Michael Howard and Whit Whitaker

Michael Howard (14C) and Whit Whitaker (81C)

One of Berry’s newest graduates became a newly minted Marine second lieutenant when Michael Howard (14C) was given the commissioning oath by Berry Chief of Staff and retired Navy Capt. Alexander “Whit” Whitaker (81C) just three days after spring commencement. The ceremony took place at Oak Hill. The international studies major and son of missionary parents spent two summers attending Marine Officer Candidate School during his time at Berry. Next up for the former student supervisor in the Berry president’s office is The Basic School in Quantico, Va., this fall.
