An Educator Right Where She Needed to Be
When LaTeisha Jeannis graduates with her doctorate in educational administration and supervision this month, it won’t be her first degree from NC State. Innovative professors and support including the Augustus Witherspoon Graduate Fellowship ensured that the College of Education was the right place for her – four times over.
Making Her Mark
Stephanie Cogdell found a home at NC State and, as a volunteer, board member, mentor and donor, she has been giving back ever since. She has established a planned gift that benefits, in part, the Black Alumni Society’s Augustus Witherspoon Graduate Scholarship Endowment and Lawrence M. Clark Memorial Undergraduate Scholarship funds.
Caldwell Fellows Think Big about Leadership
A gift from program alumnus Jeff Williams will ensure life-changing experiences at the Center for Creative Leadership for future Fellows.
When NC State offered then-high school student Erika Kemp an athletics scholarship, she had never run cross country. Now, she's a six-time All-America honoree, across both indoor and outdoor track and field and cross country competition. A student in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, she's also a five-time member of the ACC’s All-Academic team.
Alumni Association Honors Students and Faculty
Shelton-Caldwell Fellow Adora Nsonwu is among three students receiving the 2018 Mathews Medal, NC State's highest nonacademic honor for seniors who make significant contributions to the university and create a lasting legacy. At an April 23 event, the Alumni Association honored the students along with 22 top faculty members dedicated to teaching, research and extension, and four faculty inducted into the Research Leadership Academy.
Bringing Others Along. From his days as an RA and student body president, to his investment in the Caldwell Fellows, Tony Caravano has always believed in the NC State community.
A Family of Fellows
The Caldwell Fellows is much more than a “scholarship program” for sophomore Julia O’Brien, who is on the move in 2018.
Space Still Awaits
It’s been almost five years since Christina Hammock Koch was chosen by NASA to be an astronaut. The NC State alumna, among the guest speakers at Red and White Night: A Celebration of Philanthropy last fall, is staying busy with training and outreach efforts while she waits for her first mission -- likely a stint on the International Space Station.
Red and White for Life
Paige Harris is spreading energy and enthusiasm for NC State to alumni and prospective students alike. She currently serves as vice president of the Alumni Association Board of Directors and, in January, will become board president.
A Family Tradition
Since getting married their sophomore year at NC State, Henry Lamb and Linda McClay have stayed loyal to the Pack, raising four Wolfpackers and giving back to support the institution.
