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.

Accounting Major Susan Fasano

Susan Fasano spent her freshman year at a private university in Louisiana and then transferred to Millsaps College.

“I felt a little lost in the crowd and knew I wanted to be in a smaller community where I could contribute on a personal level,” said Fasano, a senior from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

“I love being able to share my transfer perspective to prospective students on tours because I have grown to believe in the Millsaps’ advantage. The close-knit community of high-caliber coaches, professors, and students on this campus are unique to Millsaps and cannot be mimicked elsewhere.”

Fasano is a member of the cross country team and the track and field team and serves as a presidential ambassador for the admissions office. She is vice president of the Catholic Student Association, a member of Phi Mu sorority and a 1 Campus 1 Community team member.

“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.
