Berry College welcomed 120 new alums Dec. 10 at the Fall Commencement.
Featured speaker Berry Board of Trustees Chair
Karen Holley Horrell spoke about the expected and unexpected gifts that
come with a Berry education. Horrell, divisional president of corporate
services for the Great American Insurance Co., is the first woman to be
elected chair of the college’s senior leadership board.
A trustee since 1999, Horrell recently claimed
the 2010 Distinguished Achievement Award presented by the Berry Alumni
Association in recognition of her career accomplishments. Horrell
graduated summa cum laude from Berry College in 1974. She later earned
her law degree from Emory University. The 1987 winner of Berry’s
Outstanding Young Alumni Award, Horrell was the first woman to hold the
title of general counsel for the now $4 billion insurer group.
