Tanika Chasteen graduates from Berea

BEREA — Tanika Chasteen of Crab Orchard received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Berea College conferred on December 20, 2019.

Chasteen was awarded the degree during Berea College’s Recognition Ceremony for Mid-Year Graduates held on Sunday, Dec. 8 in Phelps Stokes Chapel. Jim Branscome, retired managing director for investment analysis of Standard & Poor’s (S&P), addressed the seniors who completed their degree requirements at the end of this term.

Berea College graduates represent 14 states and 10 other countries.

Berea, the first interracial and coeducational college in the South, focuses on learning, labor, and service. Supported by Berea’s No-Tuition Promise, Berea College admits only academically promising students with limited economic resources, primarily from Appalachia. All students must work 10 hours or more weekly, earning money for books, room and board. The College’s motto “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth,” speaks to its inclusive character, and the quality of its programs ensures that graduates from Berea go on to distinguish themselves and the College in many fields.
