Retirement reception to honor TWU’s Wilkes Berry


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University will honor Dr. Wilkes Berry, professor and associate provost emeritus, with a retirement reception Thursday, Aug. 4, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on the second floor of the Administration Conference Tower, located on Administration Drive on TWU’s Denton campus.

Dr. Berry retired this month following 24 years of service with TWU. During his tenure, he served as professor of English, dean of the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, provost of the General Divisions, associate vice president for academic and cultural affairs, associate provost and interim provost.

Dr. Berry received the Award for Meritorious Service to Texas Woman’s University during Honors Convocation ceremonies in April. The award, which recognizes sustained, exceptional service to the university, has been bestowed only nine times in the last 31 years.

A native of Fort Worth, Dr. Berry graduated from Abilene Christian University and received his master’s and doctorate degrees in English from Rice University. He has served as both president of the Denton Rotary Club and governor of Rotary District 5790. He also has served as president of the First Texas Council of Camp Fire Inc. and as a member of the advisory committee for North Texas Public Broadcasting Inc.
