Berry re-elected trustee, thanks alumni for support

Louise S. Berry has been re-elected to a four-year term as an alumni trustee. Berry, of Danielson, has been a member of the Board of Trustees since 1993.

Berry expressed her appreciation for the support of UConn alumni. "I want to thank the alumni for their support and assure them that I will do the best job possible to represent their interests and work for the needs for the University," she said.

William Colburn, director of alumni affairs, said the Alumni Association has been served "extraordinarily well" by alumni trustees, particularly because of their experience as presidents of the alumni association. "Louise understands the work of the association and how we can help the University," Colburn said.

Berry has three degrees from UConn. She earned an undergraduate degree in zoology in 1952; a master's degree in education in 1961; and a J.D. from the School of Law in 1980. She also has a diploma in nursing from Adelphi University.

A former state senator (R-29th Dist.), she is superintendent of schools in Brooklyn, Conn. She is licensed by the State of Connecticut as an attorney and as a nurse, and has certification as a superintendent of schools, intermediate general administration K-12, elementary and secondary guidance K-12, and health education and school nurse K-12.

Berry is a member of the Connecticut Bar Association and also serves on the State Board of Trustees for Community and Technical Colleges.
