The Eisenhower High School senior, who has already started three businesses, is one of just six graduating seniors in Michigan to earn the 2015 Betsy and Dick DeVos Scholarship for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship to Northwood University.
To earn the scholarship, which is renewed annually for four years, Berry had to submit an essay and demonstrate to a Northwood panel his experience as an entrepreneur, including business models and his philosophy on free enterprise and the American dream.
The panel then made recommendations to Northwood’s president and to Betsy and Dick DeVos for approval.
Berry previously established his own yard-maintenance company, automotive detailing business and an internet consignment business.
The Betsy and Dick DeVos Scholars for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Scholarships is in its fifth year.
