Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Carolina Community,

The Eve Carson Scholarship is gearing up for another great year as we reconnect with our 2014 scholars and prepare for this year’s selection season. This year we are thrilled to announce the award of a third scholarship! We are all so proud to see the scholarship grow in this way, and we cannot wait to seek out these students that carry on Eve’s legacy this fall.

Both Kyle and Sarah are back from their summer experiences, and we are so glad to have them back on campus. With this year’s scholarship application going live, we turn to their blog and swell with excitement to work to create these opportunities for three more scholars this year.

As we gear up for a new and exciting selection process this fall, we also prepare for some of the annual events such as Thriller in the Pit and the Eve Carson Memorial 5k. The executive committee is currently accepting committee applications and we look forward to sharing our love for the scholarship with these new faces. Here’s this year’s lineup:

Zack Newbauer – Executive Director

John Farmer – Director of Operations

Rachel Gogal – Director of Campus Development

CeeCee Obi-Gwacham – Director of External Development

Ashley Casson – Director of Public Relations

Blake Hauser – Director of Scholars Programs

Rachel Gentry – Secretary/Treasurer

Mahmoud Saad – Second-Year at Large

We are all incredibly excited about the year in front of us, and we would all love to thank the Chapel Hill community for their avid support.

In the Carolina Way,

Zack Newbauer
