Betsey and Sheridan “Sherry” Warrick

Throughout his 26-year tenure as Executive Director of International House, Sherry was known for his open mind, warm heart, and ever-present smile. Serving beside her husband, Betsey organized staff parties, attended resident retreats, and formed lasting bonds with many who called I-House home.

A global residential and learning community at the University of California, Berkeley, I-House fosters mutual respect, intercultural friendship, and global leadership for a world of greater understanding. Since 1930, l-House has served students and scholars representing 150+ countries, including the U.S., creating a world-wide alumni community 90,000 strong.

Forever the I-House champions, Sherry and Betsey requested that their 70th wedding anniversary benefit The Fund for I-House, a vital resource that supports scholarships, programming, and large-scale initiatives such as the Dining Commons Transformation Project. International House is honored to celebrate Sherry and Betsey’s 70th year of marriage and honor them for their life-long commitment to a world of greater peace and understanding.
