Committee: Awards Committee
Date: November 3, 2007
Patty Etchison, Clara McRae, Juanita Scurry, Joyce Shelton, Mary Charles Lambert Traynham Not Present: Dr. Thomas Jarrett, (on call) Tim Howard and Earl Tillman
Meeting opened by: Clara McRae at (time) 1:25 pm
Old Business (updates from Committee Chair or subcommittee Chairs; include actions taken and to-do items agreed upon)
1 After review of the minutes, Mary Charles made the motion to approve the minutes with necessary corrections.
2 The Student Alumni Award was discussed. The subcommittee’s finding was the idea of a student alumni award wasn’t seen as necessary. Other
committee members reported on the negative feedback about this award
from other alumni. The general consensus was students should not
receive an alumni award. A motion was made to withdraw this particular award.
3 The Honorary alumni award was discussed. The subcommittee gave their report on criteria to be adopted. The criteria will be implemented next year. It was suggested that there should not be a form for the nominee to fill out. Optional documentation limited to 3 sheets can be submitted about the nominee. Questions arose about the criteria that states the “length of continuing service to the college….” Several examples were given of those individuals who’ve done great works in a short amount of time. Joyce made the motion to accept the criteria and form as amended. After a second, the motion passed unanimously.
4 The Ethics discussion was tabled until further notice.
New Business (include topic name, major points, decisions made, committees formed – if any – and follow up action agreed upon.)
1. The new honorary alumni award nominees were reviewed. After each person’s nomination and biography was reviewed, they were approved by a unanimous vote. The honorary alumni award recipients are: Randy and Nancy Berry, Dr. Thomas J. Mew III, Dr. Sam Spector, and Mr. Sunny Park. Each honorary has provided invaluable service to Berry College.
2. Clara reviewed the process for voting on nominees for the other awards already established by the alumni council. The committee was reminded that the names and profiles received by mail are to be handled in a very confidential manner. There should be no communication amongst committee members in any way about the nominees. Each category was briefly reviewed. New members to the committee were advised to evaluate a couple names a day once they receive their packets in the mail. There are about 20 nominees to evaluate this year.
3. Discussion about possible conflict of interest for awards committee members. A motion was made and carried to implement a new rule to avoid potential complication. The
motion reads: “A person on the awards committee shall not evaluate and
vote on the particular category if a family member is nominated for
said category.” In laymen’s term, if someone’s
family member is nominated for young alumni award, the committee member
can’t evaluate and vote on the young alumni award nominees.

Members Absent: Robert
Aiken II, Geraldine Johnson Bridges, Vicky C. Glass, Judith Cash
Hanthorn, Peter Henriksen, Brandon LeWayne Johnson, and Grace Mitchell
At 2:00 pm Betty Whitten called the meeting to order.
- Report on Mountain Day: Tom Bowen reported that Mountain Day was a very successful event. Tom and the Alumni Office staff recruited 38 volunteers. They
distributed more than 600 information cards to visitors and alumni.
These cards gave the alumni and friends the opportunity to indicate
their interest in volunteering.
- Identify those interested in volunteering
- Contact Chapter Presidents for lists of volunteers
- Incorporate volunteer opportunities in Mountain Day information brochures
- Report on Work Week 2008: Stuart Fuqua, Chair of Work Week, reported that the Work Week Committee met for job planning on November 2. Most jobs were identified.
- Seek funding for replacing cedar shake roofs on “Cabin in the Pines” and the “Guest Cottage” Walkway.
- Seek ways to insure that Work Week 2008 DVD can be given to all participants.
- Report on Alumni Work Day 2008: Due to budget constraints we are not able to schedule this event in 2008. However, plans are underway to organize a Work Day for 2009. One date under discussion is the Saturday before students leave for Spring Break.
- Ford Festival: Tom Bowen reported that plans for reinstating this event are uncertain. He promised to keep the Committee informed.
- The Cage Center: The Cage Center Grand Opening is planned for January 25. Therefore volunteers will be needed to “spruce-up” the building in preparation for the event. Action Item: Events Committee call for volunteers to help with these preparations on January 24.
- Date of the next Alumni Council Meeting: The
committee recommended that the next Alumni Council Executive Committee
and the Alumni Council Committee be move to January 25 and 26,
respectively. The rational for this
recommendation was to make attending the Cage Center Grand Opening,
Founder’s Day Reception, and Alumni Council activities very attractive
to a large number of participants.

Meeting opened by: Barbara McCollum at 1:10 p.m. An inspiration was provided by Andrew Landis.
- The subcommittee formed to achieve 100% Alumni Council participation by November meeting reported the goal has not been met. As of October 26, 2007, participation is a 53 percent which includes outstanding promises. Two gifts were received on Friday, November 2nd , which will improve this percentage. The subcommittee will continue to work to achieve 100 percent by February meeting.

Council participation of 46.97 percent is much improved from last year
at 20 percent due largely to the efforts of subcommittee efforts.
response to the proposal submitted by subcommittee chair, Ron Thornton,
on targeted giving, the following actions are to be taken:
- The Southeast Georgia Chapter and Berry Business Alumni were chosen as targeted groups.
President, Doyle Mathis, will lead the Southeast Georgia Chapter team
and Barbara McCollum in conjunction with Berry Business Alumni
President, Brad Roberts, will work on the business team.
- Barbara McCollum and Brad Roberts will work together to narrow the focus on the business group to include alumni in the Atlanta area.
- The team will consist of four to six alumni.
- Forms of communication will include telephone calls, personalized notes, and e-mail.
- Focus will be on both participation and dollars.
- A test project will be conducted on the Southeast Georgia chapter during November.
- A training session for the Southeast Georgia team will be coordinated by Ron Thornton, Doyle Mathis, and Barbara McCollum.
- The project will take place mid-January to late Spring with follow-up analysis will be conducted.
- Rose Nix will provide two more years of giving data to Ron Thornton.
- Whit Whitaker provided an informal report on Cage Center donations.
Fulfillment was briefly discussed and Barbara McCollum asked those
committee members who were not involved in a subcommittee to work on
this area. There will be further discussion at the February meeting.

Berry Heritage Committee
November 3, 2007
Harlan Chapman, Chairman, opened the meeting at 1:11 p.m. in room 302 of Kranert Center.
Members in attendance: Allyson
Chambers, Harlan Chapman, Jean Curran, Ouida Dickey, Jennifer Dickey,
Buford Jennings, Larry McRae, Robert Moon, Rebecca Roberts, Carolyn
Smith, Virginia Webb, and Fred Mercer, our liaison from Berry Alumni.
Other guests included: Jim Ellison, Rufus Massey, Chris Waters, Bill Roseen and Frances Richey-Goldby.
Harlan introduced Jim Ellison, a photographer, whom we would hear from a little later.
1) Fred Mercer gave us an update on Mountain Day Weekend. Since
much had already been said, Fred stated that there were over 100
golfers at the Coosa Country Club event and lots of runner/walkers at
the 5Krun/2Mwalk. After the Grand March on the mountain there were extra activities that included a bluegrass band, cotton candy, and icees. There seemed to be more people on the mountain this year.
our committee, Virginia Webb, Carolyn Smith, Buford Jennings, Jennifer
Dickey, and Rebecca Roberts were on hand to volunteer at Mountain Day
2) Jennifer Dickey announced that Candles and Carols will be December 7th and 8th from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. If anyone is interested in volunteering at Candles and Carols contact Rebecca Roberts.
had suggested at a recent Heritage meeting that possibly we need an
outline to follow in making our pictorial history of the recent ten
years at Berry. This project would end with graduation and Reunion Zero with 2008 class. Jennifer also indicated that our subcommittee would meet with Rufus Massey to decide the fate of this project. We will see work done by Jim Ellison, our guest photographer, when we break for subcommittees.
Number One for 2007-08 is to work closely with the Centennial Committee
to plan for the Alumni Association Celebration. Ouida Dickey gave us a brief overview of events connected with the Centennial Celebration which include: Founder’s
Day, Work Week, Mountain Day, Web Pages, a Clara Bowl Event, an Alumni
History event, an Alumni History Pamphlet, and a special service
project at The Cage.
2) Objective Number Two for 2007-08 is to complete several oral histories of alumni who knew Miss Berry. Harlan reported on the Oral History done with Edith Wyatt. He told us a story that Edith related about Martha Berry. When Edith was about 18 or so, she worked at the gate. Martha Berry would come by often to check on the students. Martha Berry noticed that Edith’s eyes were crossed and made an appointment for her to see the doctor. When Miss Berry came by to show Edith the bill, the doctor had written across the top of the bill “Paid in Full”. Not
only is that how Miss Berry treated her students, but she had made a
good impression on the doctor, who also sent the school a gift.
3) Objective Number Three for 2007-08 is to help find ways to support Historic Berry. Jennifer
Dickey related that she would like to see the Friends of Historic Berry
be a membership organization of a community of interest to support Oak
Hill, the Museum, and other historic places at Berry. Berry has been given a second grant from the Georgia Historic Preservation Division to continue work at Roosevelt Cabin. This is a matching fund Grant so it will require alumni and others to give.
Mountain Day, Bubba and Cindy Cathy gave $10,000 to be used for
developing guidelines for usage and restoration activities at The House
Jennifer hopes that Friends of Historic Berry not only receives monetary support but gets people interested in Berry.
4) Our committee will support the following events by attending and volunteering our time.
Founder’s Day (January 25, 2008): Carolyn Smith, Virginia Webb, and Mary Patrick.
Voices of the Past: Rebecca Roberts, Ouida Dickey, Carolyn Smith, and Harlan Chapman. Rebecca plans to use pieces from the three videos done by Edith Wyatt, Charles Acree and Betty Hamilton Davis. Rebecca
will introduce the event and the other volunteers will introduce
information about each of the three alumni that were videoed to keep
some interaction with the students. We are hoping that Founder’s Day will be in connection with The Cage opening. Rebecca suggested that Voices of the Past be held at the Science Building Auditorium.
keeping with collecting histories about Berry Alumni, several of our
committee members will present 2-3 page papers on people of interest to
Berry. These will be sent to the archives. The
following members will write papers and make a presentation at our next
Heritage Committee meeting: Jennifer Dickey – Garland Dickey, Ouida
Dickey – Dr. S.H. Cook, Buford Jennings – Dr. McAllister, Larry McRae –
Dr. Pirkle, Jean Curran – Eleanor B. North, and Rebecca Roberts – a
secret paper. Harlan suggested that Ouida send the participants a basic outline for direction.
Breakout of Subcommittees
Short Reports on Subcommittees
After viewing a presentation by Jim Ellison, the subcommittee for
pictorial history of Berry in recent years discussed with Rufus Massey
what we have done so far and the direction we want to go. Rufus reminded the group that Berry is in process with an advertising agency to pinpoint what we’re all about and create a tag. Rufus stated that not only will this be costly, but Blue Sky is telling us “how to go” at this point. Rufus also stated that Dr. Briggs is interested in keeping the oral histories going and indicated the use of students to help. We all agree that students would be useful to help run the cameras and with the editing process. We also feel that we need the more mature alumni to conduct the interviews. As Jennifer stated, the students don’t know the history and are not as connected to alumni as the older members. Also, they can’t get the students’ learning curve up fast enough to teach them how to conduct an interview. Our committee is all in agreement that older alumni should do the interviews for our oral histories. We are counting on our new archivist to embrace this project as did Rebecca Roberts when she was archivist. The
subcommittee agreed to shelve the project for now, keeping the work
that has already been done for the next Heritage Committee to continue.
We discussed combining Founder’s Day, Voices of the Past and the opening of the Cage into a day. Our timeline of events would run like this:
11:00 Chapel Service for Founder’s Day
12:30 Luncheon for Founder’s Day (Kranert) and
Luncheon for Cage donors (Ford Dining Hall)
2:00 Voices of the Past in Science Auditorium
3:30 Ribbon Cutting and Ceremony for the Cage opening
Tentatively the date is set for Friday, January 25, 2008.
discussed bringing before the Alumni Council the proposition of moving
our February 2, meeting to January 26, 2008, so that more people would
be able to participate in both events.
2) The subcommittee for centennial planning reported a timeline of events. Alumni
weekend 2008: alumni art show at Moon Gallery, big birthday party
Friday before alumni weekend, alumni recital, and alumni worship
service. Graduation 2008: Reunion Zero, Class of 58 will attend, and President’s reception. Mountain
Day 2008: all academy reunion, Mega reunion at Oak Hill-all reunion
classes, web presence and publicity, Alumni Accent, and consistent
presence in student media. Fall 2009: Student activities-KCAB & SAA
are hosting and funding event in Clara Bowl, show a movie filmed on
campus. Founder’s Day 2009: still up in the air, probably a 3 day event.
The Alumni Centennial Project: 100 years, 100 seats, $100,000 – a way to give funds for Cage Center.
Currently the committee is compiling cost for Alumni Centennial Celebration.
1) We all agreed we should combine Founder’s Day, Voices of the Past, and the Cage opening into one day.
2) We all agreed that for now we should shelve the pictorial history of the recent ten years at Berry.
Actions Requiring Approval
1) Move to change the February 2, 2008 Alumni Council
meeting to January 26, 2008.
gave us a gentle reminder from Barbara McCollum that we are trying to
reach a goal of 100% of Alumni Council members giving, so Give!
Due to our action requiring approval, meeting time and date is to be announced.
Harlan Chapman adjourned the meeting at 2:42 p.m.
Minutes were recorded and submitted by Allyson G. Chambers.

Electronic Communication Committee (committee members – Leann Yoda, Brian Lackey)
· Ways that Berry currently communicates with alumni electronically: Alumni Accent email, Alumni online community
· “SWAT” team of Berry employees has been created at Berry
to look at different ideas, 3 vendors have presented their alumni
database products to the college: Jenzabar, Black Bod, Raisers Edge
is going to research the alumni email for life idea and see how it is
working for other schools and if alumni are using it, one of the
biggest questions is does an alumni want a lifetime email account with
the college, the lifetime email would be used to keep alumni engaged,
informed and involved
alumni online community is also being looked at – should we update the
current website or look into using something like Linked In, or have a
page on Facebook or My Space
· Pod casting – Berry has this functionality but members of the committee do not know all of the capabilities that it has
· U Tube – there are already some things about Berry out there
came back to the Berry online community and the committee seemed to
like the idea that Berry was in charge or it, made it seem legitimate,
information would be correct, for the concept to work and be effective
communication with students and alumni about the presence of such a
website would have to be well communicated, what its purpose is, what
being an alumni means, what the Alumni Relations Office does, it was
suggested that some focus groups be formed to look at these thoughts
· At the senior retreat it would be a good time to introduce students to the Alumni Association
stated that more interaction from alumni with the students would help,
maybe look at the communication packages that go out to students and
how they can be improved to draw the students in, educate students on
the purpose and meaning behind certain events at the college that are
important to alumni – the example given was the candle lighting for the
Martha Berry Society Dinner, some successful events of interaction with
alumni have been the distribution of water for both freshman move in
day and the Mountain Day Olympics
Recap and Items for Next Meeting
· Chris Watters will research the college’s pod casting capabilities
· It was suggested to do a demonstration of the alumni online community for the entire council at the next meeting
· Leann and her committee will be researching the email for life concept and what other schools are doing
talked about the success of Marthapalooza (large carnival like events
sponsored by KCAB on Mountain Day for students), there were lots of
young alumni there – do we need to have a young alumni presence/table
· Admissions Ambassadors is being tabled for right now due to some transitions occurring in the Admissions Office
The meeting was adjourned at 2:53 p.m.
