According to Weegens, “Berberet is no stranger to the Highland Foundation and its operations. During his 30 years as a board member, he was president for roughly 20 years and also filled in during transitions between several full-time and part-time executives.”
Weegens went on to explain that Berberet’s primary responsibility is to re-energize the Growing for tomorrow…changing lives today campaign to fund Highland’s new Ray and Betty Stamm Health Science Nursing Wing and the Wind Turbine Technician Training Center, both on the Highland campus. Campaign contributions are also being used for scholarships for Highland students.
