March 2015 Member Spotlight

Betty Perry

Betty Perry

FIU Degree: B.S. in Nursing

Graduation Year: 1974

Lifetime Member since: 1978

Profession: Founding First Lady of Florida International University

Why she joined the FIU Alumni Association: Part of my DNA. Keeping in touch!

What does FIU mean to her: Chuck and I moved to Miami in 1969 when FIU was but a gleam in our eyes. Chuck said he would see me and our children in 3 years while the university was planned and built by his team. We were in our late 20s and early 30s and it is a miracle, the beginning and its evolution to 2015. Another 50 years into infinity will bring many more miracles.
