Morgan Bowen graduates from Berry College

ROME — Berry College announces that Morgan Bowen of Americus has earned a bachelor of science in biology.
Berry’s spring 2016 graduating class consisted of 435 undergraduates and more than 60 graduate students, making it the largest graduating class in Berry’s history. The graduates, faculty and staff, and families gathered May 7.
Graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in biology, speaker Rebecca Martin congratulated her fellow graduates on their shared achievement and reminded everyone of the importance of struggles and how we should not be discouraged by them.
“Our courage to continue despite obstacles is what makes us strong,” Martin said. “After all, is it really an achievement if you did not have to struggle to make it happen?”
