Nina and Herman Fishman (BBA ’47) didn’t celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary alone. Atlanta Best Self magazine joined in their merriment and deemed them the “Publisher’s Pick” in its 2011 “Over 40 and Fabulous” competition. The Fishman’s self-nomination stood out partly because Nina insisted on mailing it the old-fashioned way, but mainly because of their enduring love and commitment to family, says the magazine’s publisher Sherri Adair. Herman, 85, and Nina, 81, have been honored for many community endeavors over the years, but see their three children and seven grandchildren as their greatest accomplishment. Now enjoying their 61st year of marriage, the Fishmans hope to travel more and check South America off their bucket list.
