Berry Family Chair Established for Pre-Med Students

 

Dr. Tim Ward, associate dean of sciences at Millsaps College, has been named the first holder of the Berry Family Endowed Chair in Science at Millsaps.

The Berry Family Chair was established in memory of Dr. J.T.B. Berry, a physician and surgeon in the Brandon area for many years; his children, Mary, Christine and Tom; and his granddaughter, Merle Berry Tennyson Montjoy, a Jackson artist, volunteer and philanthropist.

It was the benefactor’s hope that the endowment would enable faculty to focus special attention on students who are interested in a career in medicine.

Biochemistry Major Resham Rahat

Resham Rahat vividly recalls her first visit to Millsaps College.

"I sat in a literature discussion about Dante's Inferno and observed a passionate exchange among the students and the professor," recalled Rahat, now rising senior at Millsaps. "The professor acted as a mere facilitator providing insight and direction in the conversation while the students derived logical and meaningful analyses from the readings. It seemed as though everyone was collectively invested in the development of the discussion and was interested in its eventual outcome. By the end of the class, I knew that Millsaps was where I belonged."

Coming to Millsaps from Meridian, Rahat is now majoring in biochemistry and plans to become a physician specializing in internal medicine, said her academic experience at Millsaps has shown her how gratifying it can be to accomplish the goals for a class as set by a professor.

On July 7, Josh Brooks will begin work as the new director of athletics at Millsaps. Brooks is joining the Majors from his position as associate athletic director at the University of Georgia, where he has worked since 2008.

“This is an exciting hire for Millsaps, and we look forward to working with Josh in the years to come,” said Dr. Robert W. Pearigen, president of Millsaps. “He brings tremendous energy to this position, in addition to a wealth of experience and an exciting vision for Millsaps athletics.”

Brooks begins his tenure during a time in which Millsaps’ scholar-athletes and their coaches are accomplishing great things. More than 90 Millsaps student-athletes earned recognition for their academic achievement this past spring, a tennis player made it to the national championships and a Top 20 ranking in a pre-season football poll are among recent athletic accomplishments at Millsaps College.
