Goodnight Scholars Program Celebrates the Graduating Class of 2021

The Goodnight Scholars Program is excited to celebrate the achievements, tenaciousness, and drive of the graduating class of 2021.

 As the state continues to ease pandemic restrictions, the Goodnight Scholars Program was able to host an outdoor, socially-distanced graduation ceremony at the Raleigh Little Theater. Attendees included graduating scholars, their guests, Chancellor and Mrs. Woodson, and members of the Goodnight family.

 The Goodnight Scholars Program’s Class of 2021 leaves the university better than they came, contributing their leadership, research, talents, and passions to uplifting the Wolfpack community and everyone that they came in contact with. The Class of 2021 made history this year by becoming the largest graduating class to date with 63 scholars receiving their Bachelor degrees. 

A brief glance of their accomplishments will reveal a cohort of researchers, environmental change-agents, organization presidents, and international award winners. Even with all of these accolades, the graduates continued to exemplify the program’s mission to “pay it forward” through their service and leadership in the program.
