Martha Berry was born in 18 66. Luckier than most Georgian m ountain children, she received an education. But she never forgot other children of the mountains whose parents couldn’t afford to send them to school. In 1902 Martha Berry started a school for these children.

Now eighty years later, there are a score of Berry Schools in the area, with a total of over one thousand students and a waiting list of about five thousand.
Martha Berry in her later years received many medals and honors for what she had done for the poor mountain children of Georgia, and in 1931 she was named one of the twelve most important women in the United States. Sh e never stopped working for the mount ain children till her death in 1942.
