Green HallLast month, we challenged readers to name the Berry alumnus who claimed national honors in the 1,500-meter race at the 2017 USA Track and Field Masters Outdoor Championships. Berry Kindermusik Director Kathryn Dugger Nobles (82C) nabbed her own championship (of the trivia variety) by correctly responding David Matherne (87C).

For September, we decided to focus our attention on some of the most familiar words on the Berry campus. For a shout-out in our next issue, “do your best” to tweet the name of the person who uttered the quotation immortalized on the colonnade of Green Hall. (Hint: It’s probably not who you think.) Don’t forget to include the hashtag #berrycollegetrivia.

August 17 Berry Trivia ImageIn our last issue, we asked you to name the 1961 Berry high school alumnus who recently completed his 40th year as a college president. The answer, as our proud high school and academy grads quickly will tell you, is Dr. Jerry C. Davis, who has served as president of Alice Lloyd College (1977-88) and College of the Ozarks (1988-present). This summer, he was honored as the 2017 recipient of the E. Burr Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.

The subject of this month’s question (pictured at right) is the Berry record-holder in the 1,500-meter run (3 minutes, 48.20 seconds). Recently, he won a national championship at that same distance in the 50-54 age division of the USA Track and Field Masters Outdoor Championships. For a shout-out in our next issue, tweet the name of this 1987 graduate who has gone on to great success as a teacher and coach at Cartersville (Ga.) High School. Be sure to include the hashtag #berrycollegetrivia.
