Congratulations, Tim Berta
Achieving a milestone
College graduation is a great accomplishment in itself. For one individual,
this year's commencement was even more special. Eight years after
surviving a bus crash in Atlanta, GA, while traveling with the Bluffton
University baseball team, Tim Berta realized yet another milestone achieving his Master of Organizational Leadership degree. Tim's long road
to recovery is an inspiration for many and a testament to the power of faith.
