Scholarship Recipient Spotlight:
HEITOR DE PAULA (20C)
When financial difficulties prevented the De Paula family from making two consecutive monthly tuition payments, Heitor thought his dreams were lost. Then he remembered making a gift to Berry's Save a Student Scholarship.
Somewhere on Berry's campus, there's a guardian angel - just ask Brandon Palmer. As a junior, unexpected financial hardship nearly cost Brandon everything. Luckily, he was soon awarded the Save a Student Scholarship, funded by Berry alumni and friends to assist students just like him.
Jeff Jahn (07C)
DONATING WEBSITES TO SHOWCASE GREAT BUSINESSES
Jeff Jahn (07C) is helping local and national companies and nonprofits during the COVID-19 pandemic by donating great websites meant to help good news find a voice.
Living by our word
Joseph White (20C) began his senior year at Berry wondering how he was going to make ends meet. Just when it looked like the aspiring doctor would have to put his own dreams on hold, alumni and other supporters stepped up with gifts to the Save a Student Scholarship, reminding him why he chose Berry in the first place.
