Dancers and local celebrities teamed up to vie for the grand prize of $10,000 to donate to a charity of their choice. President Becerra was dancing to kick start the Sester Majella Berg Internship Fund. President Becerra has spearheaded the creation of this fund which will provide stipends for Marymount students who take on unpaid internships.
President Becerra wins!
See a short clip of the inspired, lively Cha-cha that won her the DC's Dancing Stars competition in the video above. That performance, plus having raised over $50,000 from the Marymount community in support for this event won the dancing competition and allowed President Becerra bring home an extra $10,000 prize. In total, this event helped raise over $60,000 for the Marymount University Internship Fund honoring Sister Majella Berg, who was president of the university for 33 years.
Dr. Becerra would like to thank everyone who contributed to her campaign and helped her win these resources for Marymount students. Also, she would like to share her sincere appreciation to Professor Barry Erdeljon and our students for their hard work in creating her promotional video.
