Updated: Jul 17, 2018
The Rev. Caroline East Berardi was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, and graduated from the University of the South in 2006 and Princeton Theological Seminary in 2009, she is ordained in the Presbyterian Church (USA). She will be starting a position in August as the chaplain at Sharon Towers, a continuing care retirement community in Charlotte, North Carolina.
She was the Clarence Day Community Service Award winner at Sewanee and actively involved in Housing Sewanee Inc. as an undergraduate. She has been an annual donor to the organization since she graduated. We caught up with her recently and asked a few questions.
How did this influence your undergraduate life?
Regularly working with Housing Sewanee gave me a unique opportunity to live into my values and to affect meaningful change in a community I so love. It gave me the confidence in my faith my leadership skills that helped me discern my calling into vocational ministry.
Why do you contribute each year?
I give to Housing Sewanee because it engages students, faculty, neighbors, and folks just passing through for the weekend. It pulls people together and accomplishes a concrete task that, though small, really does change lives.
