Join us for the first Career Talk Luncheon of the spring semester. The Nunn School is delighted to host IAC alumna and entrepreneur, Archel Bernard, on Wednesday, February 19. Bernard is being honored by the Georgia Tech Alumni Association at the 2020 Gold & White Honors Gala for her contribution to community, and in celebration of the inspiration she provides for alumni leaders of tomorrow. Each year, the Alumni Association presents its four highest awards to eight distinguished members of the Georgia Tech community in recognition of their service to the Institute, their contributions to their communities, and in celebration of the inspiration they provide for alumni leaders of tomorrow.
Bernard will receive The Outstanding Young Alumni Award, which honors alumni younger than 40 who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and service to Georgia Tech, the Alumni Association, the general welfare of their communities and their professions.
Bernard graduated with a Bachelor’s in Science, Technology, and Culture (now LMC) from the School of Literature, Media, and Communication in 2011. After graduating, she moved to Monrovia, Liberia—her ancestral homeland which her parents had fled in the 1980s during a brutal civil unrest. She has since helped train and employ disadvantaged Liberians by creating her fashion business, The Bombchel Factory.
