Virginia Campbell Courts: Philanthropist

Virginia Campbell Courts was the beautiful daughter of J. Bulow Campbell and Laura Berry, Martha Berry’s Sister. Virginia was a favorite niece of Martha Berry. She was especially important in the development and operation of the Campbell foundation during her lifetime. Reflecting her father's values, she placed stewardship, fiscal responsibility, planning, and spiritual values at the center of the foundation's work. Today Berry College has been the beneficiary of Campbell Foundation grants and The Campbell Business School honors their name.
