Beverly Jo Mullins
Beverly, class of 98’ (1957-2000) was a single mother who attended UC Berkeley as a Re-entry student from 1993-1998. During her time at Berkeley she played an active role in the Re-entry Program as a work-study member of staff and was nominated Vice-President of the Re-entry Alumni Association. In her later years at Berkeley she became a staff member at the Haas School of Business. 

For many transferring re-entry students, Beverly was the first welcoming smile they experienced on the Berkeley campus. Her warmth and caring became a symbol of the Program and a testament to how many people she touched during her time at UC. Encouraging, mentoring, and counseling re-entry students, Beverly was able to connect on a personal level.   As a single mother with no outside financial support, Beverly had also experienced the struggles of trying to stay focused on her education, and her part-time work while raising a family. For Beverly, the added challenge was to do it all alone!

For Beverly, it was critical that her son see the value of a good education and chose the greatest challenge of all – to show him by example!  In May 1998, Beverly graduated with a Bachelors degree in Sociology, with honors after 16 years of trying to attain that degree.  

Two years after her graduation Beverly was diagnosed with a brain tumor and, after a 6 month struggle, passed away peacefully in her sisters home.

Just three weeks after her death Beverly accomplished the greatest goal she had ever set; her son Jacob was accepted into many of the top universities in the nation, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Brown and Yale. He is now a sophomore at Yale University in New Haven, CT.
