OU professor Jeff Berry posthumously honored with fund benefitting students and rural communities

People in Oklahoma’s rural communities may one day have better access to the radiological services they need. And for that, they can thank four generations of the Berry-Miller family.


The Professor Jeffrey L. Berry Memorial Scholarship Fund will provide scholarships for students who are from a rural area or interested in serving a rural population to study in the University of Oklahoma College of Allied Health Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences.


The fund was first established by Jack and Maribeth Berry in 2014 as the Normah and John Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund to recognize Maribeth’s parents. It was repurposed in 2019 to honor their son, OU Associate Professor of Radiography Jeff Berry, who died unexpectedly in 2019.
