Reuniting with Nate Berkus '90

New York City isn’t exactly next door to Ashburnham, but when it comes to purple pride, distance is hardly a concern. On Tuesday, October 5, a group of Cushing alumni, faculty and staff headed off to the Big Apple for a taping of The Nate Berkus Show. Berkus, who is a member of the Class of 1990, launched his new television show in September after serving as Oprah's design guru. And since he couldn’t make it to his recent 20th reunion, we decided to bring one to him!
Surprised by the group as he walked on set, Berkus immediately located his beloved French teacher, Cheryl Storm, and explained to the audience what a difference she made in his education and in his life. At the end of the show, Berkus invited the CA crew on stage for a chat and group photo. All of us at Cushing wish Nate the best of luck with his new endeavor!
