Cecil B. Wright III Integrity in Leadership Lecture Series

Funded Graphic

The most public component of the Berry Center for Integrity in Leadership is a lecture series meant to welcome at least one speaker per semester for an evening presentation accompanied whenever possible by a classroom discussion and dinner with students and special guests. The series is named for Cecil B. "Buster" Wright III (pictured), a 1973 Berry College alumnus who now serves on the Board of Trustees. The naming honors his role as a force behind the leadership center and its mentoring program, his financial commitments, and his personal character.
