teague-halle.jpgHalle Teague
Major: Communication
Minor: Creative Technologies
From: Van Wyck, SC
Sport: Equestrian
Mentors Include: David Alford, Christopher Whitmire, Dr. Curt Hersey, Scott Simpson and the entire team at the Berry College Carpentry Shop and Physical Plant
Favorite Berry Memory: Among my favorite memories is performing in the first ever Interactive Cyber Theatre production, For Better or For Worse, in Spring 2021 with the Berry College Theatre Company. This was a brand new type of theater developed by David Alford. It combined long-form, immersive improvisation with live audience input via online polls. The results of the polls were transmitted by our technical team to the performers in real time via earpieces, and the performers would incorporate the audience's decisions into the events onstage, meaning the audiences had a profound impact on the outcome of the show. Being a part of the collaborative team that came together to develop the idea, write the story, perfect the technology and eventually put on the full show was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I will never forget.
What’s Next: After graduation, I will be heading to Granby, Colo., where I will be employed as a Wrangler at C Lazy U Ranch for the 2022 summer season. I will be leading guests on scenic horseback rides in the Rocky Mountains and helping to work with the large herd of horses managed by the ranch.

The Berry Women's Golf team has been my family since the first day I was at Berry. I cannot pick a favorite tournament, but each tournament was filled with so many funny moments and beautiful views. One of my favorite golf memories was the moment I stepped foot at a tournament after COVID. I wasn't sure we'd ever get to play in another tournament during my time here. Everything was so uncertain, but there was something so heartwarming about putting on a Berry golf shirt and getting to represent this school just one more time.
