Photo Round-Up: Class of 2024 Finalist Interview Day and a Pair of Service Activities

Goodnight Scholar student volunteers lined up during Class of 2024 Finalist Interview Day Welcome Ceremony.

Our best photos from visits to the Oak City Outreach Center and Carolina Tiger Rescue, as well as our spectacular Class of 2024 Finalist Interview Day.

The Carolina Tiger Rescue in Pittsboro has been rescuing wildcats across the country since 1973. Oak City Cares and its community partners are working diligently to minimize the impact of homelessness in Raleigh. While both of these organizations have different missions, their commitment and passion for service is undeniable.

Both organizations hosted groups of Goodnight Scholars for a day of service while teaching them about the resources they provide. In between sanitizing classrooms and organizing supplies, Goodnight Scholars learned from Oak City Cares leadership about the ripple effects of homelessness on critical areas like nutrition, employment, and healthcare. At the Carolina Tiger Rescue, volunteers gave Goodnight Scholars hands-on opportunities to clean-up habitats covering 55 acres, which also led to some face-to-face time with some seriously big cats.

For our Program to consistently support these service efforts, we need to constantly replenish our number of scholars.

Enter: Finalist Interview Day!

The Class of 2024 Finalist Interview Day brought 200 finalists and guests to NC State’s James B. Hunt Jr. Library for a day of celebration, enthusiasm, and yes, a little bit of nervousness. Tours of the magnificent Hunt Library and Albright Entrepreneurship Garage showcased cutting-edge tech and NC State’s entrepreneurial spirit. In-depth panels with current Goodnight Scholars and NC State faculty highlighted NC State’s excellence in academics and school spirit. And above all else, we got to learn about the amazing accomplishments and inspiring goals of the Wolfpack’s newest members.
