NC State is fortunate to have alumni who want to make a difference. Here’s a glimpse into some of the impacts they’ve made – and how they made them:
Most graduating classes give back to the university by way of a class gift. The NC State Class of 2011 chose to support the construction of a new university gateway to represent the beauty and character of NC State’s campus.
Alumnus Lonnie Poole, along with his wife, Carol, gave $37 million to fund an endowment for the Lonnie C. Poole Jr. College of Management as well as an additional $3 million for a golf course club house and an endowment for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Created in honor of Coach Kay Yow, the Kay Yow Endowment raises money toward scholarships for female athletes at NC State. Yow, who died of cancer in 2009, continues to inspire students at NC State.
