Do you think you know Martha? Well, we don't think you have heard all of her tales! Join fellow alums and friends for a talk with Dr. Susan Bandy about some of Martha Berry's lesser known stories.

Dr. Susan Bandy has spent her life as an educator. After graduating from Berry College, she completed her master’s degree at the University of Georgia and then her Ph.D. in the history and philosophy of sport at Arizona State University.

She then taught at several universities in the U.S. before heading to Europe for 12 years, where she taught sports studies in Hungary as a Fulbright Scholar at the Hungarian University of Physical Education and in Denmark as a Visiting Professor at Aarhus University.

After returning to the U.S., she taught sports studies at The Ohio State University for 11.5 years. Today, Susan gives guest lectures in sports studies, sport literature, and gender and sport. She's also a member and the co-chair of the Program Committee for the The Daughters of Berry, Inc.!

We'll randomly select FIVE listeners who tune in live to win fun Berry-themed giveaways!

Anyone who comments "MARTHA" in the comments during the live lecture will be entered into a random drawing to win one of the following prizes:

- ONE winner will receive a copy of Susan’s book, "The Viking Tradition: 100 Years of Sport at Berry College"
- ONE winner will receive a Ford mug (not available anywhere else!)
- THREE winners will receive a set of the Always Berry cow magnets, featuring the adult cow and calf

We can't wait to "see" you all there!
