Rodney Ferguson Memorial


As President of the USCA in 1984, Rodney gave Ridge Project its current name, Casa Zimbabwe. He was an important part of Co-op history and culture, and beloved for his continuing stewardship of Co-op friendships and connections until his sudden passing. Rodney was like family to many people.


After college, Rodney pursued his passion for helping adults achieve literacy, which he evidenced through a 20-year career as a staff member and manager at LEAP (Literacy for Every Adult Project), and helping teens and young adults receive their GED.


Donations will support Berkeley Student Cooperative Scholarships for our lowest-income students. If $25,000 can be reached by May 31, 2021, we can also establish the Rodney Ferguson Memorial Scholarship Fund, an endowed scholarship that will leave a permanent legacy.


Donations can also be mailed to: Berkeley Student Cooperative, c/o Rodney Ferguson Memorial Campaign, 2424 Ridge Rd., Berkeley, CA 94709.
