Berkeley Welcomes Newest Cum Laude Members
On May 2, we welcomed Whitney Holtzman ’06, Founder and CEO of Social Victories, a sports social media and marketing company for some of the biggest names and organizations in the sporting world, who addressed the newest inductees of the Cum Laude Society. Berkeley is one of approximately 380 schools in the country that has been granted a Cum Laude Society charter. The national organization of scholars was founded in the tradition of Phi Beta Kappa to recognize academic excellence.
Holtzman shared some lasting words with the new members and the audience saying, “You are the first YOU,” further explaining that there is no way to mess up your personal blueprint for life. “Life comes with challenges…and highs and lows,” she said, adding that it’s up to these future graduates to grow from their rights and wrongs and push forward with their dreams even if it means “recalibrating” at times.
We are honored to recognize and congratulate the newest members of the Berkeley Preparatory School chapter of the Cum Laude Society!
