Clark Track Challenge
Two alumni members of the Berry College Board of Trustees – Bert Clark and Roger Lusby – have taken a leadership role in fundraising for the
eight-lane track circling Valhalla’s playing field by committing $325,000 in
matching funds (all now claimed) to encourage additional gifts. Their
generosity helped spur an outpouring of support by other alumni and friends. As
a result, funds raised for the track now total $667,000, with approximately 60
donors – many of them cross country and track alumni – making a gift or pledge
in support of the project.
The ultimate goal is to create new opportunities for students
to participate in intercollegiate athletics by providing the first-class home
necessary to support Berry’s full participation in track and field as a member
of NCAA Division III and the new Southern Athletic Association. Clark Track is
an important first step.
