Dr. Shelly Lowery, who graduated from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 2004 with a degree in biological engineering, credits NC State and the Park Scholarships program with helping her develop the leadership skills needed for success in medical school and beyond.
“What I learned most as a Park Scholar, as a student at NC State, is service is a big deal,” Lowery said. “As a leader, first and foremost I have to be willing to serve others and do what I’m asking others to do. So, I live life like that. I treat my patients that way. I try to give back in any way I can.”
