Berry alums are quick to offer their help during difficult times! Here's what one alumna, Hiawatha Henry (63C), is doing:
What do you do for a living?
I am a retired teacher. I had two teaching careers: home economics and special education. I am also on the board of directors for KidStuff, an organization that ministers to special needs children.
How have you been impacted by COVID-19?
I have isolated because I have a compromised immune system.
How have you been helping others during the COVID-19 pandemic?
I have been making masks for the hospital and for my doctor's office. I have been sewing for over a week now and have made several hundred masks!
In addition, I make capes and deliver them to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (Egleston and Scottish Rite). This is not a new project but one I have been doing for five years to bring a smile to the children's faces.
When we do something to bless others, we are blessed beyond measure!
What would you tell Berry alums and/or students right now?
I recall those years at Berry with fondness. Mrs. Scoggins taught me to love sewing, and I still enjoy it today!
