The Sports Alumnae Mentor Program is a yearly event that started last fall, September 2012. The event is designed to introduce alumnae mentors to current Berry athletic students and talk about expectations for the year. The Picnic on Saturday, April 6, 2013 (above) was a wrap up event for the year as well as a thank you to the alums who participated. This year, a total of 32 sports alumnae participated along with 50 current female students.
The goals of this program include the following:
– to provide Berry’s female student athletes with career guidance and advice
– to provide the female student athletes with mentors who understand the stress and time constraints that student athletes face while juggling sports and school work
– to give Berry alumnae an opportunity to give back in a way that is personally meaningful
– to create a strong network among our female athletic alumnae that provides greater growth opportunities for everyone involved
