The Berry team brought home the following recognitions and awards:
Finishing in the top 10% of all competitors: Carson Gilliam (Roswell, Ga.), Bryce Nethery (Trenton, Ga.), and Loren Kim (Duluth, Ga.)
Finishing in the top 20% of all competitors: Breelan Baxter (Canton, Ga.) and Olivia Nye (Lynchburg, Va.)

The training leads to a world-wide sales competition where students are recognized for their skills. Afterward, employers like Dell, Gartner, Herc Rentals, Tom James and Techtronic Industries hand select students for jobs.
“The purpose of the team is to sharpen skills, build resumes, assist in career placement, win competitions, and grow the overall character of the student,” Clark said.
