The centennial celebration for the Berry Alumni Association got off to a rousing start during Alumni Weekend 2008, and a command performance by world-renowned tenorMichael Hendrick (89C)set the perfect tone for a party 100 years in the making.
Approximately 600 alumni and friends returned home for the three-day event, with many staying on for Alumni Work Week, June 1-6.
