Class of 1960 alumnus Louis Bershad returned to College of Marin to see the campus, speak to COM students and meet the Drama and Business students who each received the Ro and Louis Bershad Scholarship. To honor two of his COM professors to whom he attributes his success—Weaver Meadows of the Business faculty and Fred Thon in Drama—Louis contributed funds to establish two $2,500 scholarships, one in each academic area.
Louis and his wife Ro Diamond are partners in SDB Partners, Inc. Talent Agency in Beverly Hills. Born and raised in San Francisco, Louis attended College of Marin from 1958 until graduation in 1960. After his military service in the Marines, Louis moved to Southern California and established the talent agency in 1972. If you would like more information about establishing a student scholarship please email Executive Director of Development Dr. Linda Frank.
