ALUMNI CELEBRATE BERRY’S CENTENNIAL IN STYLE
M ore than 500 guests dined and danced the night away at the Centennial Alumni Gala in
celebration of Berry’s 100th birthday. The evening culminated with the cutting of a large
birthday cake, complete with confetti-firing cannons and dozens of balloons falling from the
ceiling of the Forum in Rome.
A total of 650 alumni and friends took
part in Alumni Weekend, with highlights
including 12 class reunions, two book
signings and the installation and
dedication of a new Georgia historical
marker at the Old Mill.
Headlining the weekend was the
