Reunion Volunteer Highlights

Daniela Pirela Manares '20

“Since I came as an International student from Venezuela, I was scared for the differences in culture and language. However, I found a family, friends, and created connections on day one. Not only do I have the opportunity to work as a staff member on campus, but as volunteer, I am able to share my love for Berea and its students with my classmates and colleagues. Besides the fuzzy feelings of helping people, knowing that you are making a difference is the best thing. We have a saying in my country that goes, “drop per drop makes an ocean of difference.’”Daniela Pirela Manares ‘20

Guy Adams '81

“I chose to volunteer because it’s the least I can do to attempt to repay Berea College, in some small way, for transforming my life. During my time on campus, I was transformed from a mediocre student who entered reading on an 8th grade level to someone confident in my academic abilities. Berea College alumni have made an incredible difference in the world and knowing I’m a small part of its rich, impactful history is both meaningful and encouraging to me.” -Guy Adams ’81
